Police pursuit ends in Elysian Valley

Photo by Echo Park resident

A police pursuit ended in Elysian Valley late this morning after a damaged Nissan 300Z ended up on the sidewalk and officers apprehended a suspect dressed in Dodger gear, according to a reader. The above photo, taken by an Echo Park resident, was taken at about 11:15 a.m. on Fruitdale Street near Ripple Street.  Four squad cars and a police helicopter were on the scene in addition to some under cover officers.


  1. Does anybody happen to know what initiated the pursuit? Was he wanted by police, or was it theft auto?

  2. The car was stolen last Monday. The “under cover officers” at scene were Northeast auto detectives, who initiated the pursuit when they spotted the vehicle.
