Authorities say a 21-year-old Malta man is hospitalized with serious injuries after he apparently fell from scaffolding on a Saratoga building while trying to elude police during a foot chase.

The Saratoga Springs Police Department says officers began chasing Darryl Mount after spotting him shove a woman into a brick wall near a downtown bar around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Police say Mount ran down a nearby alley with several officials in pursuit. The officers lost sight of him but later learned that someone heard a crashing sound behind a nearby building under construction. Officials say they found Mount lying on the ground and called for emergency medical crews.

Authorities say he suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Albany Medical Center. Information on his condition isn't immediately available Tuesday.
