Two people were arrested in connection to the carjacking that led to a crash involving a Dayton police cruiser Sunday morning.

Isaiah Youngblood and K Lone Dashawn Snowden, both 18, are being held in the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of receiving stolen property. Snowden, who is also facing a previous receiving stolen property charge, is a student at Meadowdale High School, according to the Dayton police report.

Police said a pellet gun was used in the aggravated robbery in the 1500 block of Sundale Avenue.

The vehicle, a white 2006 Chrysler 300, was taken from a 38-year-old man, according to the police report.

UPDATE @ 5 p.m. (Nov. 13)

A Dayton police officer was hurt after a man driving a stolen vehicle crashed into his cruiser this morning in the area of Germantown Street and Ruth Avenue.

Officers were pursuing the vehicle, which had been taken in a carjacking on Sundale Avenue, when the vehicle tried to turn at Ruth Avenue and struck an officer’s cruiser as the officer was responding to the area, according to Dayton Sgt. Creigee Coleman.

The officer was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening, Coleman said.

The driver of the stolen vehicle ran from the crash but was eventually located and taken in for questioning. Coleman said he was not hurt in the crash.

Four other people who were in the stolen vehicle were taken to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment of injuries.

Coleman said officers found a pellet gun that was in the possession of the driver of the stolen vehicle. He said the gun looks just like a real handgun and it was used in the carjacking on Sundale Avenue.

“This was a successful apprehension without the use of guns, without the use of violence, and without the use of force by the police,” Coleman said.

The identities of those involved have not been released.
