At approximately 9:45am this morning a concerned citizen called 911 stating that they saw a male with a gun enter a green mercury mountaineer in the McDonald’s/Rocky’s Hardware parking lot on President Avenue.


A partial plate was also obtained. This information was broadcasted to all patrol units to be on the lookout.


A short while later, Officer Paul Furtado initially observed a vehicle matching the description and partial plate match near Wal-Mart on Quequechan Street.


He began following the vehicle along with Officer Kelly Furtado. Special Operations Division Officers Michael Hadaya and Joshua Carreiro also were in the area and attempted to affect a traffic stop.


Despite all of these officers attempting to stop this vehicle, the operator accelerated and drove on to the sidewalk to avoid being stopped.


The vehicle continued north on Quequechan Street toward Pleasant Street. At this time, a short pursuit began. Officers converged toward the area of Pleasant and Quequechan Streets.


The suspect continued on Quequechan Street, travelling on the wrong side of the road and disobeying traffic control signs.


The operator swerved to avoid colliding with another police vehicle that was travelling south on Quequechan Street.


The vehicle then mounted the curb and sidewalk causing significant damage to the wheels and ultimately disabling it at the intersection of County Street and Quequechan Street. Two suspects fled from the vehicle and a foot pursuit began.


A perimeter was established and one of the suspects was cornered in the rear yard of 275 County Street. After a brief struggle, the male was taken into custody and identified as Kristopher Ferreira (d.o.b. 09-28-1978) of 16 Russell Street, Apt #1, Fall River, MA.


The Bristol County Sherriff's Department K9 unit assisted with tracking a second suspect to no avail.


At this time the investigation continues in an attempt to identify and locate him. Two female passengers in the vehicle were detained and questioned as part of the investigation.


Officers canvassed the nearby area where the apprehended suspect had ran through and located a replica pellet pistol that had been discarded.


Kristopher Ferreira faces numerous charges to include Disturbing the Peace while Armed, Failure to Stop for Police, Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle. The investigation is still ongoing and more charges may be added. The suspect vehicle was seized and towed to the Fall River Police Department for further investigation.
