The suspect reportedly jumped out of the moving vehicle and fled on foot before being arrested on Eight Mile near Woodward, police said.
Ferndale Police arrested a 21-year-old man early Monday morning after a high-speed chase that led into Detroit.
Around 4 a.m. Monday, a Ferndale Police officer saw a Pontiac G6 near Woodward and Eight Mile Road and checked the license plate of the vehicle. The car had been reported stolen out of Detroit on Sept. 4 from an armed robbery, according to a news release from police.
As the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver drove into a neighborhood in Detroit onto Wellesley Street and then fled at high speeds through the neighborhood. The suspect then bailed out of the moving car and ran on foot, police said. The car crashed into a tree and the suspect fled on foot.
A short time later, officers found him walking on Eight Mile near Woodward and arrested him. The suspect is a 21-year-old resident of Detroit, according to police.
The case is currently being reviewed by the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for a determination of charges.
