During the same timeframe, a separate officer was dispatched to a theft at a gas station on University Ave. Officers on the two different calls were able to determine that it was the same group of people involved in both calls. Vehicle information was provided by one of the callers and officers checking the area saw the suspect car at West Towne Mall. A stop was attempted and the vehicle fled. No pursuit initiated.  Shortly thereafter, an officer was canvassing and saw the car parked near a suspect's residence. The officer was able to pull up as the suspects were approaching the car and the suspects fled. A foot pursuit ensued with the three suspects.

The ex-boyfriend has a history of mental health problems and has attempted suicide multiple times. She has been hesitant to report his behavior for fear that he will hurt himself or her. Last night the suspect showed up at the victim's house and called her multiple times. The suspect left a note on the victim's car, which was possibly a vague threat.
