At approximately 10:30 p.m., patrol officers arrested a 21-year-old Bedford man in the 6100 block of Almon Street in connection with this incident.

At 10:40 p.m. an officer observed a vehicle travelling above the speed limit inbound on Bayers Road.

The officer caught up to the vehicle at a red light, queried the plate and learned that it was reported stolen. The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the driver of the vehicle refused to stop and took off heading back outbound on Bayers Road.

The vehicle was pursued out the Bi-Hi until it exited at Duke Street in Bedford. When the vehicle reached Rocky Lake Drive the pursuit was discontinued.

The vehicle was located unoccupied on Birch Street in Bedford and a search of the area could not locate the driver. Investigators were able to identify him and charges are expected once he is located and arrested.
