A Winston-Salem man and woman were arrested this morning on larceny charges and other offenses after police officers including Chief Scott Cunningham chased them in a stolen car, authorities said. No one was injured.
Jemmond Tremmal Washington, 21, of 1397 Holly Court was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, reckless driving, speeding to elude arrest and failure to heed blue lights and siren, Winston-Salem police said in a news release.
Kimberly Ann Sutton, 21, of 517 W. First St., was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, police said. She was a passenger in the stolen car.
The incident started shortly after officers responded to a reported larceny of a 1997 Honda Accord at 1734 Richard Allen Lane, police said.  Chief Scott Cunningham saw the stolen car speeding on Northwest Boulevard near Trade Street about 7:51 a.m.
Cunningham caught up with the car on Northwest Boulevard near Trade Street, police said. Detective John Collins was in his vehicle at the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and Cherry/Marshall streets when the driver of the stolen car backed into Collins’ vehicle.
The driver then attempted to ram Cunningham’s vehicle, but Cunningham was able to maneuver his vehicle out of the way, avoiding the collision, police said.
The driver drove west on Northwest Boulevard, and Cunningham and other officers chased him, police said. The driver led the officers on a pursuit to West First Street, Cloverdale Avenue, Business 40 westbound, Robinhood Road and Shattalon Drive.
The chase ended when the stolen car broke down at the Wilco Hess station at 4019 Reynolda road, police said. Officers arrested Washington and Sutton, who are being held Friday afternoon in the Forsyth County Jail.
