A man was arrested in National City after leading police on a high-speed chase through the streets.

The man was suspected of carjacking his girlfriend's car after punching her in the face, said National City Police Lt. Greg Seward.

Detectives put out a "be on the lookout" for the suspect and the car. On Wednesday, they located the vehicle and tried to pull him over eventually leading police on a chase through National City, Chula Vista and San Diego.

Police said speeds sometimes reached over 100 mph. SkyRanger 7 was above the pursuit as the car came dangerously close to hitting others and as he ran a red light in an intersection, ultimately missing a school bus.

The man eventually crashed the white sedan into a sidewalk and ran out on foot. Police quickly released a K-9 and were able to arrest him.

Police said he will be charged for evasion, carjacking and domestic violence. He will be taken to a local hospital to treat the dog bites.
