Felony robbery suspect captured after pursuit

February 19, 2021

On February 12 at approximately 11:41 a.m. Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety Officers attempted to serve a felony arrest warrant on Teion McClatchey, a 20-year-old male who resides on Avenida Cala in Rohnert Park.  Although the suspect did not come to the door, the officers saw a maroon 2006 Mercedes parked in the driveway.  At approximately 12:28 p.m., after the attempted warrant service, an alert RPDPS Officer saw the same maroon Mercedes driving southbound on Snyder Lane.  The officer recognized the driver of the vehicle as Teion McClatchey and was the only occupant in the vehicle.  

At that time a vehicle pursuit ensued.  Rohnert Park Officers pursued the suspect briefly into the M Section.  The pursuit continued onto northbound Snyder Lane and westbound onto Southwest Blvd. towards the railroad tracks.  It was then that McClatchey’s vehicle collided with a Rohnert Park Patrol Car, causing damage to the patrol car’s push bumper.  The pursuit continued onto northbound Commerce Blvd. before it entered Highway 101 North.  

The suspect continued to drive northbound on Highway 101 while the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Helicopter, Henry 1, flew overhead.  The suspect vehicle exited the freeway on Bicentennial Way as Rohnert Park and Sonoma County Sheriff’s Units pursued the vehicle into the Kaiser Permanente Parking Lot. 

The suspect vehicle came to a stop when it crashed into a pole in the parking lot.  The suspect then fled from the vehicle on foot towards the Sheriff’s Office Main Station.  Rohnert Park Officers and Sheriff’s Deputies continued to chase the suspect on foot.  Eyewitnesses saw the suspect enter the apartment complex at 643 Russell Ave.  Sheriff personnel set up a perimeter and closed in on the suspect.  After approximately 30 minutes, the suspect exited an apartment with his hands raised and was taken into custody without further incident.  It is unknown at this time if the suspect knew anyone at the apartment complex.  Thanks to a coordinated effort between Rohnert Park DPS Officers, Sonoma County Sheriff’s Deputies, and Santa Rosa Police Department Officers, a dangerous felon was captured.

Teion McClatchey was booked into the Sonoma County Jail for Felony Evading, $25,000 Felony Robbery Warrant out of Sonoma County and a Marin County Arrest Warrant for multiple crimes.
