Auto Burglarly Suspects Arrested After Pursuit Identified

Police have identified three auto burglary suspects who allegedly rammed a San Francisco police vehicle while attempting to flee and were arrested after a high-speed pursuit through the city early this morning.

Lombrelle Hopkins, 35, Kimberly Dalton, 45, and Alfred Wayne Wallace, 41, were arrested on suspicion of various felonies after a pursuit from Pacific Heights that ended in the South of Market neighborhood this morning, police said.

The pursuit began at about 1:30 a.m., when officers responded to a report of an auto burglary in the 2200 block of Sacramento Street near Lafayette Park.

A blue Nissan Pathfinder SUV, occupied by two women and a man, rammed a police vehicle while attempting to flee the area, police said.

Officers pursued the SUV on a pursuit that ended in the area of Fourth and Clara streets, where the three suspects were arrested.

Police said at least one officer complained of pain as a result of being rammed by the SUV.

Hopkins was driving the SUV and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, evading police, three counts of burglary and conspiracy. Dalton and Wallace were both arrested on suspicion of the burglary counts and conspiracy and Wallace was also arrested on a parole violation, police said.
