Several suspects arrested after west side police pursuit

WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) - Police from several jurisdictions were involved in a police chase early Thursday morning, which ended in a crash and bailout.

The chase started in North Ridgeville just after 4 a.m., according to Westlake police. Police observed several people "prowling" in parked cars and followed the suspects along Center Ridge Road.

After a short pursuit through several communities, including Rocky River, police say the driver lost control of the car near the intersection of Clague Road and Detroit Avenue in Westlake.

Three of the suspects were apprehended immediately. Just before 6 a.m., a resident in the neighborhood saw a male running through his yard and called police. That suspect was arrested shortly after.

When a Cleveland 19 News crew arrived to the scene of the crash, police and state troopers were towing away a dark blue Lexus.
