ANDERSON, Calif. -

Shasta County deputies are searching for an armed and dangerous suspect who they said fled from law enforcement.   Brady Dallen, 38, is wanted for felony assault warrants, stolen vehicles, felony evading, and narcotics violations.  Deputies said he is considered armed and dangerous. He has fled from law enforcement numerous times and fled again from law enforcement Sunday.

According to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office, at 4:13 p.m. deputies observed Dallen driving a red Ford Bronco on Leopard Drive near Anderson at a high rate of speed.

As deputies approached the Bronco in their patrol units, Dallen reportedly continued driving towards them acting as if he was going to hit them head-on.  Deputies said at the last second, Dallen swerved his vehicle out of the way and drove through a field fence. He continued driving through the Millville Flats area at a high rate of speed and again drove through another field fence.

Dallen drove the Bronco over a rock cliff where it crashed into large boulders. When deputies arrived they found that Brady Dallen and a woman had climbed out of the Bronco and fled the area. Another woman was located hiding in nearby bushes and was detained. (Her name is not being released at this time).

She was transported by ambulance to a local Hospital for complaint of pain.  With the assistance of the California Highway Patrol Helicopter and a K-9 from the Anderson Police Department, an extensive search was conducted. Residences in the area had been notified by Shascom that Brady Dallen and the unknown woman had fled the scene and they were advised that he was armed and dangerous. At this time neither Dallen nor the female have been located.

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office is asking that if anyone comes in contact with Dallen to use extreme caution and call the Sheriff's Office immediately via 911. He is described as a WMA, 6'01, and 165 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. See attached for photo.
