A driver and a passenger surrendered to authorities in Bell Gardens after a pursuit that began in the East L.A. area Wednesday.

During the pursuit, a female driver was seen heading down the wrong side of the streets, narrowly missing oncoming traffic, and blowing through red lights.

Around 5:10 p.m., the driver stopped and fled on foot in Bell Gardens, along with a male passenger. They were seen running down alleys, through neighborhood yards, and at one point the driver was seen jumping from one rooftop to another.

The two separated briefly but regrouped before they were surrounded by deputies and surrendered.

The pursuit began when officers spotted the man and woman, who were wanted in connection with an assault and possible robbery investigation, in the area of Indiana Street and Union Pacific Avenue, police said. Further details of the alleged crime were not available.
