Police Searching For Man Suspected of Stealing Car

Police pulled the car over on Rolison Road.

Redwood City police spent much of lunchtime Wednesday searching for a suspect who fled on foot after being pulled over in a stolen Toyota Camry, a police lieutenant said.

A traffic officer maneuvered behind the 1990s Camry just before noon and, after running the plates, learned that it had been stolen from San Jose, police Lt. Sean Hart said. 

When the officer pulled over the Camry in the 3500 block of  Rolison Road, the male driver fled on foot.  

Hart said the officer ran after the driver, but that the suspect managed to escape. A perimeter was set up and officers searched the area  until around 1 p.m.

Police have no detailed description of the driver. 

"Officers are working to ID the suspect from the items found inside the car," Hart said. 

A juvenile female who was riding in the car was detained at the scene.
