A man suspected of attempting to carjack three people was arrested in Ontario Thursday evening following a chase that began in downtown Los Angeles.

The chase began with Los Angeles Police Department officers in pursuit before he raced onto the Santa Monica (10) Freeway and soon transitioned to the eastbound Pomona (60) Freeway at speeds that exceeded 100 mph with California Highway Patrol officers in pursuit, KCAL reported.

The suspect left the vehicle at Archibald Avenue and Oak Hill Drive in Ontario and began running through residential streets with an object on his hand. At one point he tried to carjack three people before officers tackled him and took him to the ground, according to KCAL.

Police took the suspect in to custody just after 10 p.m., KCAL reported.
