A man being sentenced for a simple misdemeanor in Des Moines on Thursday will soon be facing more serious charges after running from the courthouse.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says the man was read his sentence but before he could be placed in custody he ran from the building.

Deputies chased after him but couldn’t find him.

The suspect’s name isn’t being released. A warrant will be issued for his arrest.
