Several police cars, officers and a police dog were deployed to the area around Bunbury Hospital about 11am, where the 19-year-old was being treated for unknown injuries.

Officer-in-charge Sen. Sgt Mal Jones said the man had an outstanding arrest warrant and after being discharged he ran from police.

The man was found a short time later in bushland near the South West Sports Centre.

Sen. Sgt Jones described the incident as a “good result”.
