Police said when officers arrived, they saw a gray Ford Fusion speeding away from the area.

The vehicle ran two stop signs before turning southbound onto North Riverside Drive, where officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle.

The Ford Fusion did not pull over and continued driving into surrounding neighborhoods, police said.

Police said they pursued the suspect until the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a creek near Chandler Drive and Hollis Street.

According to police, the driver fled from the vehicle on foot through the creek bed.

According to police, officers found a black Taurus 9mm handgun that had been discarded by the suspect while fleeing on foot.

The driver of the Ford Fusion during the first pursuit, 24-year-old Robert Juarez, was arrested on charges evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, parole violation, and a Westlake traffic warrant, police said.
