A robbery suspect led nearby Crescenta Valley deputies, CHP officers and Los Angeles police on a wild chase through La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge and Sunland-Tujunga.
The chase began in the La Crescenta area around 8 a.m., according to Sheriff's deputies, who eventually decided to terminate the pursuit shortly after and monitor the car from the air.
The man was described as a robbery suspect. Lt. Tonya Edwards with the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station was unable to confirm at this time if this was the man who allegedly robbed a doctor's office in Montrose Oct. 30.
The driver of the white Toyota Carolla sped through streets while running red lights and sometimes driving in opposing lanes, according to Sheriff's scanner traffic.
The driver nearly hit a woman walking some dogs.
California Highway Patrol officers attempted the PIT maneuver on the robbery suspect multiple times before finally boxing him in in the area of Fenwick Street and Mather Avenue in Sunland-Tujunga. The suspect initially refused to comply with officers' commands to exit the vehicle, instead opting to light a cigarette, authorities said.
The suspect eventually complied with authorities and was taken into custody around 8:50 a.m.
