Police arrested an escaped criminal last night after the man stole a car and then narrowly missed hitting an officer and a pedestrian in another attempt to flee, according to reports.
The events began to unfold Thursday morning when Devron Parrish, 27, took a car from an aquaintance without permission from the 2500 block of East Fifth Avenue.
Hours later police spotted the car as it sped along Mansfield Avenue. The chase ended in a crash after Parrish nearly collided with a patrol car, another car, and a person walking.
Parrish attempted to run from the crash scene but police caught him.
He will be in court this afternoon facing new charges. He had been sought on a warrant for escape from community custody, according to police.
