The driver of a vehicle that refused to stop for police gave the slip to the cops and left behind the car, which the authorities claimed to be stolen.

At approximately 3:25 a.m., officers attempted to pull over a car with occupants inside who were wanted for attempted theft and trying to ram a police car. 

The driver sped through the area of Normal Road near Montclair State University but bailed from the car in the 100 block of Woodlawn Avenue. 

Police began to chase the suspect but appeared to have lost him during the chase. 

The assailant, a black male, was last seen wearing grey sweats with short dreads.

Authorities have not reported the suspects' arrest as of 5:55 a.m. 

There were no injuries reported.
