The Pathfinder was parked in a driveway. As the victim was seated in the vehicle, the suspect approached the Pathfinder, implied he had a weapon and demanded the vehicle. The victim exited the vehicle at which time the suspect entered and drove away in the stolen Pathfinder without incident.

As the investigation continued, officers provided the description of the stolen Pathfinder to officers throughout the city.

At 11:42 p.m.Friday evening, a North Precinct officer located the stolen Pathfinder being driven near Northeast 148th Avenue and Northeast Sandy Boulevard. Officers attempted to stop the driver and stolen vehicle, but the suspect continued driving west on Northeast Sandy Boulevard. Officers pursued the vehicle. Near the intersection of Northeast 102nd Avenue and Northeast Sandy Boulevard, officers utilized a pursuit intervention technique (PIT) and a box-in maneuver to stop the vehicle. Once officers stopped the vehicle, the driver continued to try and drive away, but officers were able to successfully prevent the vehicle and suspect from fleeing in the vehicle. Officers took the suspect into custody.
