Police in Elk Grove are trying to find some young men who are suspected of vandalizing and attempting to steal a car overnight in the 8400 block of Mountain Bell Court.
Police spokesman Chris Trim says a neighbor scared off the suspects after spotting them breaking a window in a car parked near his home.
Trim says the suspects took off in dark-colored car and the neighbor gave chase in his car.
"They apparently drove around the Shasta Lily neighborhood several times, at which point the vehicle that the neighbor was chasing crashed into a fence and brick wall," he said.
Trim says the suspects ran away on foot and no one's been arrested.
Police will investigate reports the neighbor may have been speeding around 80 mph on residential streets in his pursuit.
