Officers arrested two suspects in the pursuit of a stolen vehicle in Petaluma Wednesday, according to the Petaluma Police Department. The suspects were first seen in the parked stolen vehicle at 1:03 a.m., before they attempted to flee as officers approached them, police said. The driver of the stolen car eventually began fleeing on foot and managed to elude police for over nine hours, according to police.
The driver’s girlfriend was left in the back seat of the vehicle and was arrested on suspicion of unrelated charges, police said. At 10:45 a.m., police were still investigating the incident in the 1200 block of Ramona Lane. The driver, later identified as Stewart Giovanni Borondy, 29, of Petaluma, jumped a sound wall onto Caulfield Lane while police were setting up a perimeter.
There he was apprehended by two officers and two detectives and was arrested for felony evading in a vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle and probation violation, police said. Borondy was booked into Sonoma County Jail and the vehicle was returned to the owner.
