Pleasant Hill Police have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect following a kidnapping and carjacking that injured a child and mother Monday morning in Pleasant Hill, police said.

As we previously reported, at 7:19 a.m. Monday, Martinez police were pursuing a stolen vehicle that went into Pleasant Hill.

Police ended the pursuit because of safety concerns, but the driver, identified today by police as 23-year-old Vincent Wilson, continued to speed through the city.

The suspect’s vehicle collided with another vehicle at the intersection of Viking Drive and Contra Costa Boulevard, police said.

Police said the collision injured a 2-year-old child and the child’s mother, who were both taken to a hospital where they were treated and later released.

Following the collision, the suspect ran from the stolen vehicle and carjacked another vehicle that was stopped in traffic.

Police said the suspect took over the vehicle from its driver and drove the vehicle and the driver to a Martinez neighborhood where the suspect fled, leaving the kidnapping victim there.

The kidnapping victim was not harmed.

Wilson is wanted for kidnapping, carjacking, felony evading and fleeing the scene of a traffic collision, police said.

PHPD press release says he is ft 2 in and 190 lbs. Meth, anyone?

Glad the victims will be ok. What a horrible experience.

Mary Fouts August 16, 2017 at 4:47 PM

Oops, typo. Meant 6 ft 2 inches tall and 190 lbs.

Antifa is missing one of their heavyweights.

Looks like a tweaker with a record. Hurt a mom and baby and life behind bars might not be so enjoyable. Even criminals have standards.

Sad, threw his life away at 23. Opioid use is a huge problem.
Sadly I’ve seen it ‘good families’. This is a crisis we must all address. The situation in the North East is dire.

Never trust anyone named Vincent unless they’re 75 or ilder

Mary Fouts, you had it right the first time. He is a two inch guy!

Dr. Jellyfinger August 16, 2017 at 10:32 PM

I’ll bet there’s a woman to blame!

mary fouts, look up a height and weight chart, 190 pounds at six foot two is definitely not underweight. no need to spread false theories about meth

The REAL tragedy August 17, 2017 at 1:00 AM

The REAL tragedy here is another victim of early 20’s male pattern baldness. Rest In Peace this dude’s hair.

Maybe the Pleasant Hill cops would catch this guy if they were so harassing teens and giving out tons of traffic tickets to soccer moms.

BOIL HIM ! August 17, 2017 at 4:31 PM

drugs or not its him, just an awful person…. Do not ruin it for everybody else because of this one loser. There are many people who do drugs and don’t bother or harm anybody else…

In fact some drug users make damn good music,art and movies.. if you don’t agree then throw away your Beatles album and others because for example the Beatles were especially high as hell when they wrote yellow submarine I mean come on “we all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine”? I’ll take what they were smoking please!

In all seriousness though please don’t be like this guy, let him be a lesson to all of how not to behave but don’t blame/bring drugs into it as all your doing is giving him and others an excuse for their behavior when the truth is there are way more people on drugs doing no harm to others than there is doing harm.

Plus blaming drugs for every crime that happens not only do you give the criminal an excuse for their behavior but you hurt the people who really need these medicines/drugs by restricting their access even more just for in return a “feeling” of being a little more safe but feelings are not fact and the fact is people will get them one way or another and probable in a less safe manner off the streets than if legally regulated causing more crime and troubles for everyone involved in the long run.
