New London man arrested after police chase
New London — After a brief car chase, New London police on Thursday took into custody a man with an active arrest warrant for mulitple felony charges, police said.
About 2:51 p.m., the New London Police Department was involved in a brief pursuit while trying to serve a warrant for Derek Lopez, 33, of 92 Truman St., Apt. 5, Capt. Brian Wright said in an email. The pursuit ended on West High Street by Redden Avenue.
The pursuit resulted in no injuries, Wright said.
The Day reported on Nov. 26 that police were looking for Lopez to ask him questions about a nonfatal shooting that occurred the day before.
Maribel Perez, who has the same address as Lopez, was charged in the incident with first-degree kidnapping, first-degree aggravated assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and first-degree risk of injury.
A warrant for her arrest alleged that she and Lopez shot two victims because they thought the victims had stolen heroin.
