Carjacking suspect taken into custody after lengthy chase in southeast Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - A driver was taken into custody after leading police on a lengthy chase through southeast Oklahoma City.

It started before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday when police spotted a truck that matched the description of a stolen vehicle from an armed robbery.

According to a police report, a woman told police a distant relative came inside her home, telling her that he needed her vehicle because police were looking for him and then produced a handgun.

The man, later identified as Angel Martinez, 25, took the keys and drove off.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle on I-35 near SE 21st St but Martinez refused to stop and a pursuit began.

The chase lasted about 30 minutes and went around the southeast part of Oklahoma City.

Officials say Martinez hit stop sticks several times and the chase eventually ended near SE 25th and Central Ave.

Authorities tell News 4 that officers fired a non-lethal round to get Martinez out before being taken into custody.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of aggravated attempting to elude a police officer, larceny of an automobile and robbery with a firearm.
