Authorities are searching for at least two men who were involved in a carjacking in East Palo Alto, which led to a high-speed pursuit that ended with the suspects fleeing on foot near a movie theater in Union City early this morning, a Menlo Park police sergeant said. The incident began with a report of a carjacking in East Palo Alto at about 12:15 a.m., and soon afterward Menlo Park police spotted the vehicle and pursued it as it crossed the Dumbarton Bridge and eventually traveled into Union City, Sgt. Matthew Ortega said. The pursuit ended about 10 minutes later near a Century Theaters on Union Landing Boulevard, according to Ortega. The two suspects bailed from the vehicle and were not found by police in the movie theater or the nearby parking lot, Ortega said. The suspects are still at large, and the East Palo Alto Police Department is the lead agency investigating the incident, according to Ortega.
