SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 24-year-old man was arrested early Thursday after he stole a vehicle in Linda Vista, then used it to ram four vehicles in Rancho Bernardo and Scripps Ranch in four separate robbery attempts before leading officers on a short chase, police said.
Officers spotted the man in the 13200 block of Black Mountain Road and pursued him to the 9400 block of Twin Trails shortly after midnight, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.
He bailed on foot in the Twin Trails area but was eventually taken into custody on suspicion of auto theft and four counts of attempted robbery, Delimitros said in a statement.
During the attempted robberies, the man allegedly used a Nissan Xterra stolen in Linda Vista to ram other vehicles in the Rancho Bernardo and Scripps Ranch area. Once he rammed the other vehicle, he demanded cash from their drivers, Delimitros said, noting none of the other drivers complied.
No one was injured, he said.
The man's name was not immediately released.
