Atwater PD Looking for Vehicle Pursuit Suspect Who Had 2-year-old Daughter in Car

On Saturday, December 2nd, Atwater Police engaged in a high-speed vehicle pursuit involving a driver who failed to yield to Atwater PD Officer Radke who attempted to stop the car for several vehicle code violations.

The pursuit took officers through Atwater, Winton and north on Santa Fe Drive through Ballico and Cressey before it was terminated outside of Turlock on East Avenue. The driver was identified as 26 year old Carlos Villegas.

Villegas has an outstanding warrant for his arrest related to an assault with a firearm and is obviously now wanted for questioning involving this pursuit.
