Last evening, at approximately 11:05pm, Richmond Heights reported an attempted carjacking in the garage at the Galleria. Suspects were last seen running from the garage, after they could not drive the vehicle because it had a manual transmission.
A Brentwood officer observed two of the suspects on the parking lot at Brentwood Square. When the suspects saw the officer, they ran west into the Brentwood Forest area. A few minutes later, another Brentwood officer observed the suspects driving a white Jeep Cherokee, on E. Swan Circle, at a high rate of speed. The vehicle had been taken in the 1400 block of Bluebird Terrace. The victims had returned home, when they were approached by two men, who demanded the woman’s purse and keys to the car. Both suspects were armed. The victims both complied, and the suspects left with the vehicle. The victims were not injured.
The suspects purposely rammed a Brentwood vehicle on Wrenwood Lane, and proceeded south on Brentwood Blvd. A long pursuit of the vehicle by several different agencies ended with a crash at Natural Bridge and Clara. Both suspects fled the scene.
Brentwood and Richmond Heights detectives are investigating the incident.
