Employees of the gas station flagged down an officer on patrol in the area and pointing at the suspect vehicle as it fled onto Mt. Diablo Blvd. The officer attempted a traffic stop at which point the vehicle fled.
After a short pursuit, the suspect turned onto a dead-end residential street and crashed into a drainage culvert. The driver tried to escape on foot up a steep hill but officers were able to quickly detain him.
A subsequent investigation determined that the subject was driving a carjacked vehicle that was taken during another armed robbery in a neighboring state. Police arrested the suspect on multiple charges including armed robbery and fleeing from the police. Officers booked him into the Martinez Detention Facility.
