San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies were investigating a suspicious vehicle near Strawflower Village on Monday morning.
At 4:21 a.m. there was a noise complaint at 411 Chesterfield Ave. in Half Moon Bay. Sheriff’s deputies responded and found a suspicious vehicle in which four subjects were drinking.
A deputy on the scene said that one of the occupants acted in a suspicious manner. A deputy went to cuff him, but the suspect fled. As a chase ensued in the surrounding area, reinforcement was called in.
A second deputy stepped in to try to detain the suspect. The suspect attacked that second deputy, according to officials. As the two fought, the deputy pushed a button that opened the door to his cruiser and the Sheriff’s canine engaged the suspect.
