Warren police took two men into custody after a wild pursuit Wednesday afternoon that started in Warren and ended in Detroit that injured police officers.
According to Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer, patrol officers observed a black Dodge Ram truck without a license plate traveling at a very high rate of speed on Nine Mile Road near Ryan Road and began a pursuit. When officers activated their sirens and lights and attempted to execute a traffic stop, Rahm headed south on Logue Street and continued to elude police.
“One officer noticed the driver was wearing a ski mask,” Dwyer said.
The black Ram fits the description of the vehicle that was reportedly involved in a shooting at 10 Mile Road and Groesbeck Highway on Sunday, Dwyer said.
While trying to evade the police, she deliberately rammed two patrol cars, damaging one of the Ram’s front tires.
The officers who were in the vehicles when they suffered minor injuries, Dwyer said.
“Like every police pursuit, this pursuit was closely monitored in real time by patrol supervisors. Traffic was not heavy and speeds were moderate throughout the entire pursuit, and ultimately two suspects were apprehended,” Dwyer said.
Warren police pursued the Ram into Detroit near the area of East Outer Drive and Connor Street where a wheel rim fell off the Ram, causing it to stall. The Ram driver jumped out of his car and into a black Cadillac Escalade occupied by two people.
Officers pursued the Cadillac through several side streets in Detroit and Hamtramck until the Cadillac crashed in Hamtramck. The Cadillac driver and two additional passengers fled the scene on foot. Warren officers quickly located the driver and passenger and arrested them. The third person was unable to be located after an extensive search by multiple law enforcement agencies that responded to assist.
Officers confirmed that a Dodge Ram vehicle had been reported stolen out of Sterling Heights.
This is an active investigation with detectives working to figure out what other violent crimes these suspects may be involved in, both in Warren and other Macomb County communities. Investigators hope to have additional information early tomorrow.
It is known that stolen vehicles and their occupants are often involved in other crimes
Crimes, in this case, perhaps violent crimes that occur in Warren and perhaps elsewhere
“I am confident that both suspects will face various charges including fleeing and eluding among other felonies,” Dwyer said.
He added: “I am also confident that our investigators will be able to identify and arrest the third suspect very quickly.”
