Navy man arrested after high-speed chase from San Diego to Riverside

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A Navy man suspected of stabbing his girlfriend to death over the weekend was arrested this morning after leading authorities on a high-speed road chase from San Diego to Riverside County, where the slaying occurred.

At the request of Riverside law enforcement, San Diego police tracked down the fugitive’s car in the 8200 block of Hurlbut Street in Serra Mesa about 4:45 a.m., SDPD public-affairs Officer Joshua Hodge said.

The suspect, identified as Jared Bischoff, 25, of Riverside, fled in the white 2013 Kia Optima, leading patrol personnel over various city streets in the Clairemont Mesa area before entering northbound Interstate 805, Hodge said.

The pursuit, which at times reached speeds around 100 mph, continued to the north on I-5, then to the east on state Route 78 in the Oceanside area. Near Rancho Santa Fe Road in San Marcos, the California Highway Patrol took over the chase, which soon entered northbound Interstate 15.

After reaching Riverside County, the suspect exited the freeway and continued fleeing on city streets for a time before finally pulling over near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Rubidoux Boulevard and getting arrested.

The killing for which Bischoff was being sought occurred at 5:15 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Calmhill Drive and California Avenue.

The victim, whose name was being withheld pending family notification, died at a hospital of multiple stab wounds, according to Riverside police.
