Police Arrest Two Suspects Eluding Arrest

By Jorge Casuso

September 24 -- Two Los Angeles suspects were arrested Friday after crashing into two cars and a motorcycle fleeing from Santa Monica police.

The incident began shortly after noon when Sunset park residents reported seeing an adult and a juvenile, both Black, driving around the 1400 block of Ashland Avenue and engaging in suspicious activity, police said.

“They were ringing doorbells and walking back to their car,” said Lt. Alex Padilla.

The suspects fled on Ocean Park Boulevard, where they crashed into two cars and a motorcycle at Bundy Drive, Padilla said.

The suspects continued driving southbound on Bundy, where they abandoned the vehicle at a gas station at National Boulevard, he said.

The suspects fled on foot and police set up a perimeter, Padilla said. Both suspects were arrested.

The two were charged with evading arrest and felony hit and run, police said.

The motorcyclist sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital as a “precautionary measure,” Padilla said.

Anyone with information should call the Santa Monica Police Department, Office of Criminal Investigations, Robbery Homicide Unit at 310.458.8451, or the watch commander 24 hours a day at 310.458.8427.
