Guam - Police Chief Paul Suba chased down a hit and run suspect Saturday evening. In a release from GPD spokesperson officer Allan Guzman, Chief Suba observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and in a reckless manner at the Agana Shopping Center parking lot.  Suba then followed the suspect who kept slamming his brakes even causing Suba to strike the rear bumper of the vehicle.

Suba was able to get the vehicle's license plate number before the suspect sped toward the Chalan Pago area going at about 100 mph.

While held up in traffic, Suba was able to observe two individuals in the vehicle, the operator wearing a white colored ball cap and shirt. The suspects then cleared traffic and continued to drive recklessly through the Route 4 and Route 10 area. Chief Suba also observed the suspects brake abruptly and execute a sharp left turn into the Pago Bay housing, turn off his headlights while then taking a sharp right turn into Frank Perez Park. Suba followed the vehicle as they sped toward the ocean and ran over large coral rocks and drove along the shoreline.

The suspects then came to a sudden stop causing Suba to again strike the rear bumper of the car, and causing it to roll into the water. While the two individuals exited the vehicle, the driver then ran toward a jungle area near the beach, while the passenger ran back toward the Park pavilion.

Chief Suba was able to confront the 23-year-old passenger who was on foot, and was found back at the vehicle.

While police continue to investigate the hit and run accident that occurred at the ASC, the case remains open and arrests are pending.
