Suspect in Chevron Armed Robbery Nabbed After Pursuit

On October 21 at 5:33 a.m. Antioch Police Officers were dispatched to the Chevron gas station located at 3400 Hillcrest Avenue on a report of an armed robbery that just occurred.

Officers obtained both a suspect and suspect vehicle description and broadcasted the information to surrounding law enforcement agencies. Within moments of the broadcast, Antioch officers located the vehicle and attempted to conduct an enforcement stop. The vehicle failed to yield to the officers and a lengthy vehicle pursuit ensued.

The pursuit took officers onto Highway 4 several times (in both directions) as well as surface streets in both Antioch and Oakley. Once in Oakley, Oakley PD officers assisted in the pursuit and began to follow the vehicle on to Big Break. While on Big Break, the suspect vehicle attempted to intentionally ram both Oakley and Antioch Police Vehicles.

One Oakley PD vehicle was struck by the suspect vehicle while one Antioch PD vehicle was run off the road. The pursuit culminated with the suspect vehicle losing control as it attempted to go off road and overturned. The suspected exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended by an Antioch officer.

The suspect, a white male adult, 27, was transported to a local area hospital with what was described by medical personnel as serious but not life threatening injuries. Upon being medically cleared he will be booked into the county jail on several felony charges. No citizens or officers were injured during this incident.

The name of the suspect, as well as the property taken during the robbery, are not being disclosed at this time so as to preserve the integrity of the investigation. It should be noted that during the pursuit officers were able to determine that the suspect vehicle had in fact been reported as stolen several days earlier out of Antioch.
