Jesus “Jesse” Fernandez, 39, of Ramona, was arrested by CHP, on suspicion of felony charges that included armed robbery, evading peace officer, assault with firearm, and threaten crime that could cause death/great bodily injury, according to authorities.
The calls began around 3:30 p.m. when a man was seen walking down the street with a rifle and getting into a car around 12th Street, said CHP Public Information Officer Kevin Pearlstein.
At Dye Road and state Route 67 a woman and her daughter were in their vehicle at the stoplight when a man in a car next to them pointed a rifle at them, according to the report. The woman put her car into reverse, crashed into a fence, ran into nearby Fire Station 82 and called 911, the report stated.
According to Pearlstein, the suspect drove into a driveway on San Vicente Road where he pointed a rifle at a couple and stole their laptop and iPods. The female called 911, he said.
As CHP pursued the suspect down San Vicente Road toward San Diego Country Estates, he crashed his vehicle in a field near Chuck Wagon and San Vicente roads and fled on foot, said Pearlstein.

The original report attributed methamphetamine intoxication as the main cause of death. However, in a follow-up investigation the medical examiner’s office said it learned that Salayer was prescribed selegiline, a medication used to treat Parkinson’s.
