MANHATTAN — L train service was suspended briefly between Manhattan and Brooklyn Wednesday afternoon while police chased after two people who jumped on the tracks at Union Square, according to the MTA.

Service resumed with delays by about 4:39 p.m., the MTA said on its website. Service had previously been suspended between Eighth and Bedford avenues, while authorities went onto the tracks after the two people, an MTA spokesman said.

One person was arrested early on, while police looked for the other in the tunnel between Sixth Avenue and Union Square.

The second person managed to evade police, an NYPD spokeswoman said, and power was eventually restored.
