Charges are expected Monday against a 32-year-old suspected violent felon who was found running near railroad tracks in Rancho Mirage.

Adalberto Raygoza of Cathedral City had an active felony warrant and was wanted on suspicion of attempted murder, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and spousal abuse, according to Sgt. Dave Morton with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies captured Raygoza around 7:30 a.m. Thursday as he was running by the railroad tracks near Bob Hope Drive and Ramon Road, according to Morton. They chased him on foot and arrested him.

Morton said that as Raygoza was being arrested, an unoccupied patrol vehicle parked near the railroad tracks was damaged by a passing train.

Raygoza was being held at the John J. Benoit Detention Center without bail.
