PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A shoplifting suspect is in police custody following a police chase at speeds in excess of 100 mph with his 5-year-old child unrestrained, officers said.

During Sunday afternoon's arrest, police had to deploy a stun gun and ultimately a police dog to subdue the suspect, identified as Jesus Olivares, 23.

On Thursday, a loss prevention officer at a Walmart store located 2020 N. 75th Ave. told police he saw Olivares selecting items at the store and handing them to a woman, Michelle Castillo, who put them into her purse, a court document stated.

Olivares fled on Encanto Boulevard with his child inside, police said. An officer pulled behind the vehicle at North 83rd Avenue and West McDowell Road. The officer said Olivares ran a red light, "almost colliding with several cars," according to court paperwork.

The suspect entered Interstate 10 and drove at speeds exceeding 100 mph, a probable cause statement asserted.

Police developed leads where the couple was going and proceeded to the 8800 block of West Cypress Street, where they saw the child in the backseat and Olivares fleeing the scene, court paperwork said.

The suspect tried to force his way into a home, but the door and windows were locked, police said. He ran to a block wall but could not climb over, officers said.

An officer deployed his stun gun after Olivares "balled his hands into fists" and charged at him, a court document stated. The officer missed.

Olivares then hopped the fence and took off running. A nearby homeowner called 911 after he saw the suspect run into his backyard and hide in the recycle bin.

K-9 officers ordered Olivares to surrender and when he refused, a police dog was released and pulled him out.

Olivares continued to resist arrest and fought with the dog, a court document said. The suspect was finally taken into custody. He was treated for dog bites at Maricopa County Hospital.

Police said Olivares is also connected to a 2009 home burglary where jewelry and savings bonds were stolen. The suspect cut himself while breaking a kitchen window and blood was found on the victim's sweater.

Officers collected the blood evidence and after the DNA was analyzed it was determined to match Olivares.

Olivares was booked into jail upon release from the hospital. He faces several charges, including shoplifting, resisting arrest and child abuse.
