Location: Winchester Boulevard and Stevens Creek Boulevard
An officer was patrolling in the area of Winchester Boulevard and Stevens Creek Boulevard when a “Lo Jack” notification was received for a stolen vehicle. Two suspects occupied the parked vehicle.
An officer positioned a patrol vehicle behind the subject vehicle and the driver put the vehicle in reverse and rammed the patrol vehicle. Both occupants exited the vehicle. The passenger was quickly apprehended and the driver jumped over a fence. Given the wants and resistance, a electronic controlled weapon was deployed in an attempt to affect the arrest. After being struck by the electronic controlled weapon, the subject got back up and continued to flee. Eventually, he was taken into custody and treated by the San Jose Fire Department before being transported to the Santa Clara County Jail.
A Records check revealed the driver had a warrant out of San Mateo County.
A search of the vehicle yielded a loaded handgun under the passenger seat, multiple shaved keys, burglary tools, work gloves, a beanie/ski mask and a controlled substance.
