It took a chase, a pepper ball and more, but Garden Grove police apprehended a man Sunday afternoon that was allegedly trying to lure young girls into his vehicle.
According to Lt. John Reynolds of the GGPD, Jacob Lee Davis, 33, was arrested for a failure to yield to police, child annoyance and a no-bail warrant.
Officers were dispatched to the area of 12100 Tamerlane Dr. shortly before 4 p.m. regarding the suspect and spotted his vehicle driving towards Harbor Boulevard. On the street, police tried to make a vehicle stop, but the suspect would not yield. The car continued northbound on Harbor, but stopped for all red traffic signals.
In the area of Harbor and Ball Road in Anaheim, a GGPD officer did a successful PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique, usually referring to a process that forces a fleeing car to turn sideways) and disabled the vehicle. But the suspect still refused to exit his auto or comply with the officer’s commands.
With help from Anaheim police, officers “breeched” the back window of the vehicle and fired a pepper ball inside, forcing the suspect to get out of the car, where he was arrested. He was uninjured and was later booked into Orange County Jail.
According to police, Davis was wanted for assault on a police officer, and for a domestic violence crime in Huntington Beach.
