NEWTON (CBS) — A wild chase that started in Haverhill has ended with one person in custody. Police say the chase ended in Bedford and 28-year-old Donald Hall of Everett was arrested and faces multiple charges.
Haverhill Police say a man was approached at gunpoint and ordered to hand over his keys at a Tedeschi’s Food Mart late Sunday night. The victim was able to flee the scene without giving up his keys.
Then, at 2:28 a.m., Haverhill Police received a separate 911 call from the area of Arch St which is nearby the first scene, where Hector Vasquez and his girlfriend said they were approached by a white male approximately 6 feet tall. “He asked for directions,” Vasquez says. “He like grabbed her hand and he pulled her. So right when he did that I ran all the way around the car, and he pulled the gun on me.”
The suspect threatened the two with a handgun and forced them from their vehicle. The suspect was successful in this carjacking and fled the area in the victim’s car.
According to Newton Police, that same car wound up crashed on Ashmont Road in Newton around 5:30 a.m. Police believe the suspect took off on foot from that crash.
