Two men led police on a high-speed chase across the Bay Bridge after carjacking an elderly woman in the city's Financial District.

Officer Albie Esparza says the 83-year-old woman was parked in her van on the corner of Battery and Washington streets at about 1:40 a.m. when two men approached her and ordered her and another person out of the car. The men got in the car and sped toward the Bay Bridge.

Police spotted the Ford van on the Bay Bridge and began chasing after the car.

The driver led police to the West Grand exit in Oakland, where one of the suspects jumped from the moving car, Esparza said. Oakland police chased down the suspect and arrested him.

The driver continued and made it to Maritime Street in Oakland, where he was stopped and hauled to jail.

Police arrested 42-year-old Floyd Jordan of Oakland and 34-year-old Gabriel Jordan on suspicion of carjacking, robbery, conspiracy, evasion, and resisting arrest. Esparza didn't know if the two were related.

They were both booked into San Francisco County Jail.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
