Police searching for Asian man who provided ride to Alhambra burglary suspect

On Tuesday at 11a.m. the burglary of a home on the 500 block of Ramona Avenue resulted in a high-speed car race involving four African American male suspects. At Del Mar Avenue and Valley Boulevard they exited the car, which was being followed by police cars and helicopter, and ran in four directions. One of the suspects entered a bluish/gray car of the Asian man.

Police do not believe he was involved in the crime, but would like to speak with him regarding the suspect and to see if whether the entry was forced or not. "We're trying to figure out was he car jacked, or did he give someone a ride," Alhambra Police Department Sergeant Jerry Johnson said. "Until we interview him we don't know."

The suspect exited the car and jumped over the bridge near the 10 Freeway into the wash. He broke his leg and was taken by authorities to the hospital for medical care. An Alhambra Police unit responding to the scene had his dashboard camera running as he approached the area. The end of the video shows the suspect fleeing the bluish/gray car.

If anyone has any information about this incident, you are asked to call Detective Fukumoto at (626)308-4845.
