(Jan. 29, 2007 updated info) -- While much of LB slept today (predawn Monday Jan. 29), Garden Grove PD pursued two carjacking suspects into LB, prompting a search assisted by LBPD in a neighborhood just north of the 22 freeway and east of Studebaker and north [rough area Kallin/Lees].
[update] Garden Grove PD says that at approximately 3:22 a.m., it responded to a GG location where a 65 year old victim reported he'd been struck in the head by one of two subjects and was the victim of a carjacking. GGPD says it spotted the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on the westbound 22 freeway at Valley View and pursued it into LB where two subjects exited the vehicle at the Studebaker Rd. offramp near 7th St. and ran into a nearby residential area [to the north]
LBPD units responded, deployed officers, set up a command post...and shortly before 7 a.m., two suspects were located and taken into custody. GGPD says they're El Monte residents; one is a 20 year-old male Hispanic, the other is a 15 year old Asian juvenile.
