The suspect vehicle was found abandoned in the 100 block of West Harris Avenue around 90 minutes later. The car was an unreported stolen vehicle out of Redwood City, police said.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 25 to 30 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 200 pounds, with a medium complexion. He was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

The driver of the suspect vehicle was described only as a male.
