A driver lead Los Angeles Police Department officers in a high-speed chase from Silverlake through the Diamond Bar area and into West Covina on Sunday afternoon.
The pursuit started in Silverlake, after the male driver of a white Chevy SVU assaulted an LAPD police officer, attempting to run them over with their vehicle twice, according to the LAPD.
The wanted vehicle, registered to an owner in Rialto and likely not stolen, traveled from surface streets in Silverlake to the Diamond Bar area in 20 minutes, around 2:50 p.m.
The vehicle at one point travelled down the westbound 210 Freeway, weaving in and out of lanes and driving down the shoulder of the freeway at times.
The driver travelled down surface streets in the Azusa area, eventually making his way into West Covina.
The LAPD underwent the pursuit for long enough that at 3:01 p.m. they became concerned about fuel levels, and requested that the California Highway Patrol take over the chase, though the pursuit ended before the CHP vehicles arrived.
Azusa police were also notified of the chase, as the wanted vehicle travelled at high speeds on surface streets into the Azusa area, then into West Covina, through to La Punte.
The driver pulled over in a residential area in South San Jose Hills, on Doverdale Avenue and Richford Avenue, then fled on foot into a home on the 400 block of Doverdale.
