On March 28 at approximately 1:46 a.m., a citizen called the Milpitas Police Department to report seeing two suspects trying to get into a white Acura Integra on the 1600 block of East Calaveras Boulevard. The caller indicated the suspects never got into the vehicle and were last seen fleeing in a blue Honda Civic with other subjects inside.

Additional Milpitas Police officers responded to the area and started to search for the suspect vehicle and the suspects. At approximately 1:53 a.m., an officer saw the suspect vehicle in the area of Landess Avenue and Morrill Avenue.
