Man abandons car in East Side chase; he's caught; passenger takes car


Reports said an officer chased a man on foot Monday after he abandoned the car he was driving, but when the officer went back to his car, it was gone.

Reports said officer Jeshaila Dunkle tried to pull over a car about 3:30 p.m. driven by Airik Talbott, 29, for running a stop sign at Hubbard Road and Albert Street.

Reports said Talbott failed to stop and ran from the car at Saranac Avenue while Dunkle was behind him.

Reports said Talbott ran through the intersection, almost being hit by a car, and kept running until he was caught in a wooded area on Saranac Avenue.

Reports said Dunkle went back to where Talbott had got out of his car and the car was gone. Reports said a woman was in the car with Talbott, but Talbott only knew the woman's first name.
