Police chase ends in west Davenport neighborhood

Police say the incident is under investigation and have not confirmed an arrest

DAVENPORT, Iowa - Police found themselves searching through a west Davenport neighborhood for a man who led them on a high-speed chase Tuesday afternoon.

UPDATE: 3 kids in car during chase, left in car after crash

Police said the incident is still under investigation and have not confirmed they made an arrest.

Officers on the scene said a man ditched his car south of Fejervary Park and ran. At the time, they did not have a description of the driver to go off of. Police then searched the neighborhood with the help of a K-9 unit from the Rock Island Police Department.

Police eventually found the man in a garage about two blocks from his car.

"I've seen a K-9 dog. I've seen little kids. I've seen the vehicle. I've seen the back of the vehicle and the mirror was hanging off of it. It was nerve-racking. I have babies with me. It was scary," said Breanne McCleave who witnessed the car chase.

McCleave was in the car with her friend Brandi Reed when the chase went by. Reed soon realized the chase was headed toward her neighborhood.

"He went whipping around us. It was very scary. Next thing we know there's several police in pursuit. I was worried for my neighborhood, my neighbors, children in the neighborhood," Reed said.
