Police arrest parolee after chase near Alvarado Hospital Medical Center

A parolee was arrested Wednesday after trying to get away from police several times.

Police said they initially arrested 29-year-old Joseph Parreira, who was later taken to Alvarado Hospital after he complained of pain.

When officers attempted to take him back into custody, Parreira tried to get way and ran towards nearby trolley tracks.

An officer eventually caught up with Parreira.
