A man has been arrested for running on the elevated SkyTrain tracks near Main Street-Science World.

Transit Police pursued him on a foot chase and was able to apprehend the man. Following arrest, he was loaded onto an empty train.

According to Transit Police, he did not want to wait for the Train2Main shuttle that comes every 12 minutes and decided to walk to Commercial-Broadway Station. The man did not make contact with the electrified third rail and was not hurt.

The incident occurred just after 5 p.m. and caused systemwide delays for at least 30 minutes during the evening rush hour. Regular service resumed shortly after the man was pulled away.
