Belmont Man Arrested After Hit & Run Collision
Contact: Captain Patrick Halleran (650) 595-7430
A 25 year-old Belmont man was arrested Saturday evening after being chased by neighbors following a hit & run traffic collision in the Sterling Downs Neighborhood.
On Saturday, June 7, 2014 @ approx. 8:00pm, Belmont Police responded to a report of a hit and run traffic collision at the intersection of Hiller Street & Wessex Way. While en route, officers were advised that the suspect had fled the scene in a white 1994 Ford Ranger pick-up and was being pursued by a witness. The suspect fled through the Sterling Downs neighborhood and abandoned his truck in the parking lot of St. Marks Church. He then began running through nearby backyards.
As officers were searching for the suspect, it was learned that he was being detained in the rear yard of a home on Oxford Way. Upon arrival, officers found the suspect, Spencer Nymann, age 25 of Belmont, being detained by two neighbors, one of whom was armed with a pistol. The neighbor had apparently discharged the pistol into the ground while chasing Nymann. Nymann was taken into custody by officers without incident and did not sustain any injuries in either the collision or during his attempt to flee. Nymann was booked into the San Mateo County Jail in Redwood City on charges of Hit & Run causing injury and DUI.
The driver & passenger of the other vehicle involved in the collision, a 38 year-old Redwood City woman and her 5 year-old daughter were checked at the scene by Belmont Fire Department Paramedics after complaining of pain. They were released at the scene.
