Woman Arrested After Wild Chase, Burglary, and Assault

A 35-year-old woman from Monterey was apprehended by authorities after a series of events that included stealing a tow truck, leading police on a high-speed chase, burglarizing a house, and assaulting her boyfriend. The Redwood City Police Department arrested the woman on multiple charges, including vehicle theft, assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, and burglary.

The incident unfolded on Friday evening around 6 p.m. when the woman stole a tow truck under the pretense of having her car towed to a car-rental business. A vigilant Redwood City police officer later spotted the empty truck in a fast-food restaurant parking lot in San Carlos. In an attempt to apprehend the suspect, police initiated a high-risk traffic stop, but she rammed into two patrol cars, causing significant damage and managing to escape. One officer sustained injuries and was treated at a hospital before being released.

The woman then fled onto Highway 101, reaching speeds of up to 90 mph, with California Highway Patrol and Menlo Park police officers joining the pursuit. During the chase, she collided with another vehicle and subsequently braked as a CHP vehicle caught up to her, damaging and disabling the patrol car. It was at this point that authorities discovered the tow truck had a GPS tracker, allowing them to monitor her movements.

Returning to Redwood City, the suspect parked the stolen truck and proceeded to burglarize a house on Silver Hill Road. Prosecutors revealed that the woman had previously babysat at the residence, and at the time of the incident, a nanny and children were present. While she was away from the truck, law enforcement requested the assistance of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, deploying spike strips and a drone. However, the suspect managed to flee before they could intervene.

The woman’s final stop was at a gym near downtown Redwood City, where she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, who is employed there. Officers were able to apprehend her after deploying a police canine. Following the arrest, she received medical treatment for dog-bite related injuries to her hip and leg before being booked into Maguire Correctional Facility.

The suspect’s recent criminal history includes a separate burglary arrest four days prior to this incident, as well as a previous release on bail in a domestic violence-related case. She was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday after refusing to attend a hearing on Tuesday, according to the office of San Mateo County District Attorney Stephen M. Wagstaffe.
