An armed man San Mateo County Sheriff's deputies captured last night after a wild pursuit through San Carlos, has been identified as 39-year-old Marc Dubois, of Redwood City. Dubois, a parolee-at-large was arrested at the intersection of Arroyo and Orange avenues on Friday and charged on three counts: assault with a deadly weapon, felony evading and possession of a controlled substance/drug paraphernalia.
According to Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, on Friday, Aug. 16 at about 5:56pm, a parolee-at-large who fled from San Mateo Country Sheriff’s Deputies in San Carlos the previous day and has been known to carry a firearm, was observed once again on Friday.
Rosenblatt said Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Detectives currently assigned to the County Gang Task Force attempted to take him into custody at which time he attempted to run them over with his car.
The suspect fled the area in his vehicle through San Carlos and Redwood City, ramming several patrol vehicles along the way. The pursuit ended when the suspect crashed his vehicle in the vicinity of Arroyo Ave and Orange Ave, in San Carlos.
He was taken into custody at approximately 6:08 pm and illegal narcotics were located in his vehicle. He was transported to the hospital as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
"The successful resolution of this case was due to the heroic efforts of Deputies and assistance from members of the Redwood City Police Department, thankfully none of whom required medical transport," said Rosenblatt.
