SAN DIEGO – Three people were arrested Monday evening after a reckless high-speed chase that wound through residential streets in Bankers Hill, Balboa Park, Hillcrest, University Heights and North Park.
The pursuit began sometime after 5 p.m on Park Boulevard in Balboa Park when police tried to pull over a Toyota Corolla that had been reported stolen, authorities said.
At one point in the chase, the sedan slowed in the Bankers Hill area and a juvenile got out and ran off.
The speeding car, which was followed continuously by SkyFOX, eventually stopped on a dead-end street in North Park and a boy and girl got out of the car and ran down into Switzer Canyon.
Police cars swarmed the area and officers began searching the canyon on foot.
Police said they arrested three suspects sometime after 6 p.m.
