According to a Union City Police Department log, officers were called to investigate a petty theft at the department store, located in the Union Landing shopping center, sometime in the evening. However, police were notified while en route that the crime had been upgraded to a robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
During the incident, a male and female suspect attempted to steal merchandise from the store and fought with a loss prevention officer to escape, according to the report.
The suspects got into their vehicle, where the loss prevention officer tried to pull the male suspect out of the driver’s seat. The suspect placed the vehicle in reverse and dragged the officer through the parking lot until he was cast off, the report said.
A dispatcher provided responding officers with a description of the suspect vehicle as it left the Union Landing shopping center.
The first arriving officer was out of position and unable stop the vehicle but relayed information to others as the driver of the suspect vehicle turned off the headlights and fled onto I-880 heading southbound.
Officers chased the suspects into Fremont, who abandoned their vehicle near Deep Creek Road.
Fremont police helped to set up a perimeter search of the area, which eventually led to the suspects being located and arrested.
