EL CAJON (CNS) - A 34-year-old parolee was back behind bars Thursday after he led officers on a car chase in El Cajon during which two noninjury crashes occurred, police said.
Members of a fugitive task force were actively looking for Hector Miranda on Wednesday afternoon when he was spotted leaving the county library branch at 201 E. Douglas Ave., according to El Cajon police Lt. Rich Alvernaz.
Miranda is the prime suspect in a stabbing that occurred in El Cajon and is also suspected of violating the terms of his parole, the lieutenant said in a statement.
Shortly after Miranda drove away from the library, a police officer in a marked El Cajon police vehicle attempted to pull Miranda over but he refused to comply, and a pursuit ensued, Alvernaz said.
During the pursuit, Miranda allegedly struck two other vehicles but no one was hurt in either crash. Alvernaz said that the pursuit weaved through city streets and the freeway before eventually ending in the area of Highway 52 and North Magnolia.
Miranda and a woman who was a passenger in his vehicle were both taken into custody without further incident, he said, adding that the woman was later released and would not face any charges.
