Armed robbery spurs car chase, fatal crash and arrest

Shortly before midnight on Monday evening an armed robbery took place near Sawyer and Visitacion streets in the Ingleside District. A 24-year-old man was robbed by two armed men who were driving a white 4-door sedan.

Central Station police officers spotted the vehicle after receiving a description from the victim, and attempted a traffic stop near Fisherman’s Wharf. The suspects’ vehicle took off, with officers in pursuit. The vehicle was lost in South Beach, but was spotted again heading southbound on Hwy 280, where it was chased to Hwy 101. California Highway Patrol (CHP) eventually took over the pursuit, which ended in a rollover collision in Sunnyvale.

The passenger, Amari Brown-Glaspie, 18, was ejected from the car and died from his injuries. The driver, Zain Dadabhai , 19, was taken into custody by CHP and transported to the hospital, where he was treated and released for minor injuries. Dadabhai is being charged with fleeing from police causing serious bodily injury, driving under the influence, and vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Although an arrest has been made, investigators are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the San Francisco Police Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
