A suspect arrested for a weapons violation made a quick escape while police were processing him Saturday evening.
Harbor Police said a 30-year-old man was taken into custody on weapons and warrant charges at 5:30 p.m.
As officers were booking him at Harbor Police headquarters at 3380 N. Harbor Drive, he managed to escape, though it's unclear how he did it.
However, he did not get far. The suspect was re-arrested not far away without incident.
He has been transferred to the San Diego County jail.
No one was injured, and an investigation is underway to determine just how the man gave officers the slip, even if it was for a short time.
