FAIRFIELD — A purse-snatching robbery Wednesday afternoon in Fairfield led to a police chase and two arrests in Vallejo.
Fairfield police Sgt. Jausiah Jacobsen said a woman had her purse grabbed by two people at around 12:45 p.m. in the Gateway Courtyard shopping center off of Gateway Boulevard.
“The two subjects took the purse and jumped into a car with a third subject,” Jacobsen said, adding that all of the suspects are male.
Fairfield police then put out a notice to all agencies in the county, he said.
“Vallejo (police) ended up in a pursuit with the vehicle,” Jacobsen said. “Out of that, they have two in custody.”
The arrests were made before 5 p.m.
“We have officers working with Vallejo to identify the subjects and see if they were the ones,” Jacobsen said.
