A car chase that began in Oakland ended at about 8:10am this morning in the parking lot of 1st United Services Credit Union at 600 Bancroft Ave. (at Dutton). San Leandro Police assisted Oakland Police in searching for suspects that ran from the vehicle after it crashed. Although the chase ended at the time students were on their way to school, there were no reported injuries to bystanders.

Washington Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, and Broadmoor Preschool were placed on lockdown for 40 to 50 minutes while police searched for the suspects.

According to one resident, the one of the suspects jumped the wall behind Sweet Maria's and then calmly walked across Bancroft Avenue toward Safeway. Preliminary reports from police indicate that there were two suspects and one was arrested near the corner of Dutton and Kenilworth.
