HAVERHILL, MASS. (WHDH) - A wanted man with an “extensive criminal history” who triggered a massive manhunt Wednesday morning when he fled from a vehicle that was involving a police chase has been caught, police said.

The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Elias Sudler, was flushed out of a wooded area on Carleton Street around 2 p.m. after he was bitten by a K9 dog, ;)according to state police. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Video from the scene showed Sudler handcuffed to a stretcher with a bandaged head after the search, which spanned about four hours.

Sudler, who police say was wanted on warrants for stalking, sexual assault, and witness intimidation out of Suffolk County, allegedly tried to reach for a gun in a backpack when the pursuit came to an end near a CVS on Route 97 but he was unsuccessful.

After Sudler fled, troopers were able to secure the backpack and recover the weapon, according to police.
