Update: Police Arrest One Man After Duo Flee Traffic Stop

The search was called off after the man was taken into custody at about 9:20 p.m.

Update 11:25 p.m. Monday with confirmation of arrest and decision to call off search.


Coronado police had one male suspect in custody following a search Monday night after an officer tried to stop a vehicle at F Avenue and Tolita Avenue.

Two of those being sought after the 8:50 p.m. incident were described by a dispatcher as a man wearing a white sweatshirt, blue jeans and a tan cap, and a woman with dyed blonde hair and black roots. 

The dispatcher later declined to name or release the age of the suspect, but said he had outstanding warrants for driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence. He was awaiting transfer to the county jail.

The search focused on alleys off Tolita, F and nearby Ocean Boulevard. A San Diego County Sheriffs Department helicopter aided in the effort.

“OK, we're talking them into custody right now. Stand by,” an officer said on the scanner at 9:19 p.m.

The search for the other occupant of the car was called off after the male was arrested and it was found there were no outstanding warrants on his companion, the dispatcher said.

“We never got a good eye on her. We have no idea where to even start with her,” another officer said on the scanner before the search was called off.

Initial reports that there had been an assault on an officer were denied by the police dispatcher.

Hey Elmer Fudd aka Mickey Mouse...when are you going to go underground? Your frequent demeaning posts are nauseating and inept coupled with any logic whatsoever. Like I said before....take a powder.
