A San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputy had minor injuries Saturday evening after a crash during the pursuit of an accused kidnapping suspect in Chino.

Around 9:26 p.m., deputies responded to a liquor store in the unincorporated area of Chino on the 3600 block of Riverside Drive, where a woman said she had been kidnapped and pointed out the suspect, who had remained in the area. The suspect fled as deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop, causing one deputy to crash in the area of Riverside Drive and Homestead Place, San Bernardino Sheriff Sgt. Stacy Tarver said.

It was unclear if anyone else was injured in the collision.

Personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office and California Highway Patrol continued the pursuit into San Diego County, where the suspect abandoned the vehicle and fled the area on foot in the city of Escondido near the 15 Freeway and Gopher Canyon. A perimeter was established and the suspect was taken into custody around 3:00 a.m. Sunday, Riverside County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Wenndy Brito-Gonzalez said.

Details on the suspect or circumstances of the alleged kidnapping were not available.
