FREMONT — A Hayward man arrested on suspicion of a dozen burglaries successfully fled from police, taunted them and tried to mow down detectives with his vehicle during several harried January incidents, authorities said Saturday.
Starting last October, Fremont detectives began investigating a man who allegedly robbed a business on Fremont Boulevard and threatened a store employee with a knife, police said in a news release. Over the next few months, the man targeted and burgled over a dozen carwash locations across the Bay Area, including East Bay cities like Hayward and Newark along with Milpitas and Redwood City.
After tracking the man down and attempting to arrest him on Jan. 15th in Fremont, the man fled to his car and tried to mow down several detectives, ramming into one Pleasanton detective’s unmarked vehicle, police said. At another point, he jumped back out of the car and “taunted” the officers before driving away, losing the police tail on northbound Interstate 880.
Four days later, Fremont police began looking for the man again after receiving word that he had allegedly stolen a car. On Jan. 22, they encountered him in a vehicle in Hayward, where he tried to hit another police vehicle and fled on foot until detectives caught up with him. A fight ensued, after which the man attempted to run away at least twice more — once while waiting for a transport vehicle and a second time after being medically cleared by a hospital — before he was ultimately booked into Santa Rita Jail, police said.
The man remains in custody on multiple charges of robbery, vandalism and possession of stolen property.
