SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A person has been detained after leading San Francisco police officers on a high-speed chase that ended in the Mission District on Tuesday afternoon.
The chase started just after 2 p.m. when officers spotted a vehicle wanted for being involved in a carjacking being driven in the area of Richardson Avenue and Francisco Street in the Marina District.
Officers tried to stop the white Mercedes SUV and that's when the pursuit was initiated.
The SUV was reportedly traveling at a high-rate of speed before its tires were blown out by spike strips. The car then limped through the Mission District with more than a dozen patrol cars behind it.
Finally, almost 30 minutes in, the driver bolted from the car and tried to carjack another vehicle but the driver quickly backed away.
Officers chased the man into an alley, where he paced back and forth behind several cars with a backpack in his hands.
After three minutes, an officer rushed the man followed by several others, taking him into custody on Enterprise Street at Folsom.
Both the suspect and officers were injured during the struggle to detain him. The suspect was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. As for the officers, they were not transported.
San Francisco police say this remains an active and ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
