UPDATE @ 6:10 p.m. (Nov. 10)
A carjacking suspect was caught this afternoon hiding inside a vacant house after a police pursuit ended in a car crash.
Police are still looking for other suspects who stole a car at gunpoint from a man in the area of Hoover and Gettysburg avenues about 2:10 p.m., Dayton police Lt. Eric Sheldon said.
“There were several suspects that robbed the owner at gunpoint,” he said.
Dayton police spotted the stolen car in the area of James H. McGee Boulevard and Gettysburg Avenue. At that point, only the driver was in the car, Sheldon said.
“They attempted to apprehend the driver. He fled and then officers chased the suspect in their vehicles and it ended up here at Cornell (Drive) and Tennyson (Avenue) where it crashed into a fence.
“The driver of the vehicle fled on foot and some of our officers were able to locate him hiding in a vacant house,” Sheldon said.
No one was injured, but the stolen car and a police cruiser had to be towed. The cruiser was damaged after the chase went off the road through a field when it hit a curb.
The name and age of the suspect arrested has not yet been released. Police said the suspects likely would face aggravated robbery charges.
A police chase has ended with a crash in the area of Tennyson Avenue and Cornell Drive, according to initial reports.
The crash was reported about 3:45 p.m.
