10 AM: Two men were arrested after allegedly carjacking a woman in San Francisco and then leading authorities on a pursuit across the Bay Bridge to Oakland early this morning, a police spokesman said.
The carjacking was reported at about 1:40 a.m. near the intersection of Battery and Washington streets in the Financial District.
The suspects broke the window of the woman’s car and ordered her out of the vehicle while simulating that they had a handgun, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
The suspects then took the vehicle, which was spotted a short time later traveling east on the Bay Bridge, Esparza said.
Authorities tried to stop the car but it continued into Oakland and exited the highway at West Grand Avenue. One of the suspects then got out of the car and tried to run away, but was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit, Esparza said.
The driver continued for a short distance but then stopped at Maritime Street and was taken into custody as well, according to Esparza.
Police have not yet released the identities of the two suspects.
The woman was not injured in the carjacking, and no one was hurt during the pursuit.
