Man leads police on a Santa Rosa car chase

SANTA ROSA (BCN)-Police arrested a man Friday night after he led police on a vehicle pursuit through Santa Rosa.

At 11:40 p.m. officers responded to the 1100 block of North Street for a domestic disturbance, according to police.

The woman who reported the disturbance told police that her daughter’s estranged boyfriend was at the location, looking for her daughter, police said.

The suspect, identified as 40-year-old Sean Cronk, allegedly left threatening voice messages on the woman’s phone, saying he would hurt the woman’s daughter, according to police.

The woman told police Cronk had previously threatened to cut the woman’s daughter’s throat.

As officers were en route to the location, they learned Cronk might be in possession of a firearm. Officers also learned Cronk had a $500,000 warrant for his arrest for stalking, according to police.

When officers arrived, they located a vehicle leaving the scene that possibly matched the description of Cronk’s vehicle, police said.

Officers tried to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle, however the vehicle sped away, heading north on North Street.

Officers pursued the vehicle from the city’s east side to the city’s west side, at times reaching speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour on several main thoroughfares, according to police.

Cronk drove the vehicles in to an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Range Avenue. Cronk stopped his vehicle in the parking lot and fled on foot to a nearby apartment, police said.

Officers were able to catch up with Cronk. After a brief struggle, Cronk was taken into custody. He was treated at a hospital for minor injuries he sustained while officers were arresting him, according to police.

Police arrested for evading police and for having a felony warrant. He was booked into the Sonoma County Main Detention Facility, police said.
