ROCKRIDGE, Calif. (KGO) -- An armed robber apparently gave police the slip despite an intense manhunt Tuesday in the East Bay.

The search happened in Oakland's Rockridge district near the BART station. It began with a robbery in Berkeley that led to a police pursuit into Oakland.

The suspect hit a car and then crashed. He then ran into the Rockridge neighborhood. The search halted service momentarily at the neighborhood's BART station for around 20 minutes.
