Two suspects taken into custody in north Fremont at approx. 4:30 p.m. after a vehicle and foot pursuit.

Officers arrested a male suspect for felony reckless evading, resisting arrest, felony hit and run and several no bail felony warrants in north Fremont today.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m. Fremont officers from our Street Crimes Unit recognized a male with outstanding felony warrants (no bail felony assault with a deadly weapon against a peace officer, no bail felon in possession of a firearm) driving in the Irvington area.  Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the driver failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated on Fremont Blvd near Grimmer.  Officers lost sight of the vehicle after a few blocks and the pursuit was terminated. 

A few minutes after the pursuit was terminated, the suspect vehicle was located traveling northbound on I880.  A second pursuit was initiated by patrol officers when the vehicle reached the area of I880 and Stevenson Blvd.  The suspect exited the freeway at Alvarado/Lowry and headed across the freeway towards Union City.  The pursuit was terminated when the suspect began driving northbound in the southbound lanes of traffic. 

Shortly thereafter, the vehicle collided with two third party vehicles near the area of Alvarado and Lowry.  A female passenger in the suspect vehicle was immediately taken into custody by officers and the male suspect (driver) took off on foot and hopped a fence.  We had several resources in the area and he was quickly located on the roof of a house on Isola Dr.  Fire provided a ladder and the suspect came down on his own. Without further incident, he was taken into custody. 

The suspect sustained minor injuries as a result of the collision and paramedics treated two third party drivers at the scene for complaint of pain.  Officers are also investigating the suspects connection in several additional recent crimes that have occurred in Fremont.  Due to the ongoing investigation, we are not releasing the suspects name this evening. No officers were injured during this incident.
South bound Alvarado was closed for a short time between Merganser and Lowry, but has since reopened. 

We'd like to thank CHP and Union City Police for their assistance.
