After receiving information about a stolen vehicle, responding officers spotted the Audi A3 parked in a business parking lot at 1560 E. Mission Blvd.

One of the officers tried to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver put the car in reverse and rammed the patrol vehicle and the parking stall several times, police said in a news release.

The driver also crashed into other vehicles parked in adjacent parking stalls.

Police said the driver held his female passenger in the car “against her will,” and didn’t allow her to get out.

“The wall eventually caved and the driver was able to drive through and flee on foot,” police said in the news release.
