    Dallas police were involved in a brief manhunt Monday night after a handcuffed burglary suspect jumped out of the back window of a squad car.

    It happened at about 8 p.m. near Swiss Avenue and North Hawkins Street in the Deep Ellum area.

    Bicycle officers and ground units spent about 45 minutes searching for the man, later identified as 32-year-old Jarrad Jackson, who was said to be in a bloodied T-shirt.

    A K-9 unit helped narrow the search to some nearby residences.

    Jackson was found hiding between two parked cars in the parking lot of residences in the 2700 block of Live Oak.
