The CHP received word at 8:35 a.m. that San Francisco police were in pursuit of a robbery suspect who had just gotten onto northbound Highway 280 at Geneva Avenue, CHP Officer Tony Tam said.

But before CHP officers could get into position to stop or follow the car, it had already exited the highway at the next off-ramp at San Jose Avenue, Tam said.

He did not know if the suspect had been taken into custody. San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza did not have any information about the pursuit as of 8:50 a.m.
