CHANDLER, Ariz. -

A police pursuit ensued Wednesday night when a woman and her child were carjacked at an elementary school in Chandler.

This all started about 4:45 p.m. at Kyrene Del Cielo Elementary School.

Police say 40-year-old Jason Howell stole a Range Rover that a mother left running while she went to pick up her child. A 12-year-old boy in the back seat was barely able to get out before the suspect took off.

The suspect fled in the stolen SUV, speeding through the streets of Chandler, and rammed into a squad car that was trying to stop him a few miles away.

He then led police on a chase that ended with him ramming the same squad car at Mountain Vista Park near 50th Street and Ray.

There were dozens of children at the park for Little League games.

The suspect was taken into custody. Officers reported smelling alcohol on his breath.

Howell is facing aggravated assault, DUI, and felony flight charges.
