A suspect was in custody Tuesday but two others remained at-large after an unsuccessful carjacking attempt in South Pasadena, police said.

The suspects attempted to carjack the victim at knifepoint in the 1500 block of Oxley Street around 6:20 p.m. Monday, the South Pasadena Police Department said.

A struggle ensued and the vehicle crashed into a nearby garage, with two suspects fleeing on foot, and one in a vehicle, police said. The victim sustained a cut to his finger but was otherwise uninjured, police said.

One of the suspects was caught in Alhambra, and another eluded a perimeter after being seen near the intersection of Monterey Road and Mound Avenue, police said.

Police identified the suspect in custody as 25-year-old Oscar Anaya of Los Angeles and said he had prior arrests and convictions for robbery and carjacking.

The second suspect was described as Latino, 18-20 years old, wearing a light shirt, baggy jeans and a dark baseball cap. The suspect who fled in a vehicle was described only as a bald Latino who was driving a tan sedan.
