A man was injured after falling from a vehicle while attempting to flee from police, Toronto officers say.

Investigators were called to a California Sandwiches location on The Queensway, near The East Mall, at approximately 1 a.m. on Monday.

Police said they were called by an alarm company to investigate reports that someone had attempted to break in.

The alarm was triggered when someone threw a brick through the glass door of the shop, officers told CTV Toronto. It appeared that the suspects attempted to use an electric saw to open an ATM, but were unsuccessful. Cuts could be seen in the ATM, but the attempted robbers were unable to get it open, a store manager said.

When officers arrived, they saw two male suspects inside the restaurant. The suspects spotted the police and ran into a van which then drove away from the scene.

As the van swerved in the parking lot, one of the suspects fell from the back of the vehicle and landed on the ground in front of police. Several blankets and an electric saw also fell out of the van through an open door.

The man was taken into police custody, and brought to a nearby hospital for examination.

Police are still looking for a second suspect, and the Special Investigations Unit is investigating the incident. The SIU is an arms-length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been a death, serious injury or allegation of sexual assault.

Manager John Kantelberg offered advice to the man on the run: "Turn yourself in because karma's a bleep, and eventually you're going to get caught."
