Police Chase Leads to Crash in Bay View

A vehicle pursuit was initiated by St. Francis and Cudahy police Sunday afternoon. The chase ended in Bay View near the intersection of Clement and Dakota.

The vehicle is suspected to be involved in an armed robbery that occurred in Oak Creek on Saturday. The same car and suspects were observed casing businesses in the City of Cudahy as well.

A St. Francis police officer observed the vehicle traveling northbound on 794 from Cudahy. The officer followed the vehicle until other St. Francis and Cudahy police officers were in the area. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, at which time a short pursuit took place ending with the suspect vehicle crashing into multiple parked cars in the 2800 block of S. Clement Ave in Bay View.

Two individuals were arrested on scene and turned over to the Oak Creek Police Department for questioning regarding Saturday's armed robbery.

Shortly after 9 PM Sunday a third male suspect was taken into custody by St. Francis police as he was walking the area of Kinnickinnic Ave and Oklahoma Ave.

Police tell CBS 58 they are still searching for a fourth suspect. After reviewing video of the incident, police are confident there were four suspects, not five as originally thought. Police are confident that after speaking with the suspect apprehended, that the fourth suspect will be caught soon.

A witness tells CBS 58 he saw police chasing the vehicle just before it crashed into another car and caught fire. According to the witness, he saw multiple suspects flee the vehicle and police follow them with weapons drawn.

The case is still under investigation.
