A man and woman were in custody after a search at Universal CityWalk for two people who ran from a Toyota Prius after crashing it into another car outside the sprawling entertainment and retail complex at the end of a chase.
After the possibly stolen Prius crashed into the side of a sedan at an entrance near a CityWalk drop-off and pick-up area, security personnel began moving people out of the eastern end of the complex near its movie theaters. Law enforcement officers fanned out in the parking garage.
A woman was taken into custody a few minutes after the crash, but the search continued for the man. Police closed the parking garage to search for him after a report of an attempted carjacking in the structure.
He was taken into custody later Friday evening, found hiding in a car with tinted windows.
Traffic was congested in the area following the search.
