Update (12:46 p.m): Police have identified the suspect as 24-year-old Malachi Barton. He was booked on felony charges of evading arrest and assault with a deadly weapon.

Original story (7:07 a.m.): A 24-year-old suspected gang member was arrested last night after allegedly slamming into a SFPD vehicle and speeding off.

About 3:05 p.m., officers were in the area of Monterey Boulevard and Gennessee Street when they spotted a man whom they recognized as a wanted person. According to police, a warrant was issued for his arrest after the suspect had been released from federal prison earlier in the week but failed to report to a parole meeting.

The suspect, who was in a green Ford Mustang, saw the cops trailing him and sped off, hitting the police car.

The suspect fled continued driving at a high rate of speed, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak. The police car was damaged, however, no officers were injured.

The suspect vehicle was later found abandoned in the area of Holly Park Circle. Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate him.

Later that evening, around 8:30 p.m., the cops received an anonymous tip that the same suspect was in a residence on the 100 block of Appleton Street. Officers from Ingleside Station responded to the area and confirmed that the suspect was in the house. They set up a perimeter and called for the Tactical Unit, Canine Unit, and crisis negotiators.

Officers made contact with the suspect who surrendered without anymore drama. The man, who was only described as a 24-year-old San Francisco man with gang ties, was booked into San Francisco County Jail.

The world will never know the truth about these people with you jewish anti-white smug obama pole smokers deleting the truth all the time. The only good thing about obama is that he hates the jews and israel more than I do. Can't wait until Iran wipes them off the map.
