Police attempts to stop a robbery suspect went briefly awry in Walnut Creek Saturday after the female suspect abandoned her car and took off on foot across I680 as stunned motorists swerved to avoid her.
The unidentified woman was arrested by a pursuing police officer after briefly sheltering inside a business on San Luis Road. News24/680 readers at the scene said units from Orinda and Lafayette were present.
It is believed her car’s license plates were scanned by an automated reader, prompting the chase from Orinda/Lafayette into Walnut Creek. It was not immediately known which police agency initiated the pursuit.
