PASADENA (CBSLA) — Authorities have arrested five suspects in connection with an armed robbery and high-speed pursuit that stretched from Pasadena to East Hollywood Friday.
Pasadena police responded to a call of an armed robbery at a clock and watch store at 10 East Holly St. shortly after 4 p.m. A vehicle pursuit ensued with CHP giving chase.
Officers pursued the suspects in a white Kia Sol at high speeds on the 210 and 134 freeways before the driver moved onto surface streets.
The driver continued weaving through traffic, at times swerving through busy intersections, before continuing onto the southbound 170 at speeds over 100 mph.
The suspect vehicle exited the freeway at Harvard Blvd. and Melrose Ave. around 5 p.m., when five people fled on foot. The suspects could be seen hopping over fences in the surrounding neighborhood to evade authorities, who set up a perimeter and eventually brought them into custody.
The suspects had not been identified at the time of this report.
