Manhunt underway in southwest Bakersfield


The Bakersfield Police Department was searching for at least one suspect who fled on foot Saturday after a car chase was abandoned due to unsafe speeds.

The suspect failed to pull over after an officer attempted a routine traffic stop about 3:50 p.m., according to police.

Authorities later found the same car abandoned and discovered several weapons inside, police said.

Officers set up a perimeter in an area around Akers and Wilson roads and were searching for a man who witnesses told police was running through yards and at one point may have dashed through someone's home.
