SAN DIEGO – A police pursuit ended early Monday morning in Golden Hill with two people behind bars, police said.
The chase started just before 2:00 a.m. when San Diego police spotted a stolen Honda on 14th Street. They gave chase and pursued the driver throughout the Golden Hill neighborhood.
The pursuit ended when the suspect lost control and crashed on the on-ramp to the westbound 94 freeway. One of the people inside the car bailed out and tried to run away. A K9 unit was deployed and took the suspect down.
The car chase lasted about ten minutes and never reached speeds of more than about 40 mph. Both a man and a woman were arrested, one of whom was taken to the hospital to be treated for the bite from the K9 unit, which was not a serious injury.
San Diego police had not released the identities of the suspects as of Monday morning.
