Around midnight an officer attempted to stop a vehicle in Rockford. The suspect vehicle is a White Pontiac. It originated near Andrews. The officer was chasing the vehicle. When we were typing this, they were in the area of School st. The vehicle just crashed on Ashland and two suspects fled on foot. They are setting up a perimeter. Still developing.
Update: WCSO did an awesome job keeping an eye on the suspect vehicle, calling out where it was at. Then they saw it spinout. Two black male suspects fled the vehicle. Officers were on scene within seconds of the accident but the suspects had gotten out and fled. While searching the area, officers spotted a person walking and detained them for now. Unknown if it is the suspect. One suspect had dark clothing with a design on his jacket. Unknown on the second description. WCSO, ISP, RPD are all assisting with the perimeter.
