deputies attempted to make a car stop for just a regular vehicle infraction. the suspect didn't stop right away, actually drove slowly for a couple of blocks, finally coming to a complete stop. that's the when the driver foot bailed and started the search. >> reporter: why were they pulling him over. a minor vehicle infraction type stuff, i believe tinted windows or something like thats what the original reason for the stop. >> reporter: original reports indicate that he was armed. have you found a weapon? was he armed in the first place? >> there was mention of that but that's unconfirmed. we have not located any weapons or firearms or anything like that. >> reporter: were they of the residents threatened by this whole manhunt? >> no, they weren't. we have everybody in custody including the two occupants. >> reporter: you wouldn't be able to tell us his name or his description of the suspect? >> we don't have him identified and i don't even have a description of him at this point. but i should have that early this morning. >> reporter: thank you so much, sergeant cardoza. he was being stopped for a minor infraction as he was
driving along moorpark. he failed to stop and just gunned it on foot behind us. sergeant cardoza said none of the residents was threatened and they don't believe he was armed even though some occupants reported he was in the first place. we'll have more details later. thank you. >> thank you. at least the search has ended. thank you, gil. another developing story we have been talking about this morning in san francisco. a burglary suspect spending a cold night on a very steep cliff. live pictures here right now police watching the eastern face of telegraph hill a 90- degree hill. the man is in the thick brush holding on for dear life. it's right under coit tower. he has been there since about 6:30 last night. he apparently jumped over a railing at lombard and kearney after an apartment manager encountered him. apparently he had a couple of backpacks with him. police have done all they can to help him off that hill, too. >> hostage negotiators were able to offer him a variety of
services and hear him declining that on the intercom portion of the equipment at the end of the ladder. >> given the thick brush amount sharpness of the rocks it's a little dangerous to try to see if this person is actually there. >> just a few hours ago he asked for the search lights to be turned off by the sfpd and, of course, they said no. they are going to wait him out until it gets light and apparently hopefully try to extract him off that hill. 6:33 now. a man under arrest in san jose is accused of ramming police cars and putting six officers in the hospital. 27-year-old alejandro gonzalez is in jail and it took several officers a taser and a straitjacket just to get him under control. he is accused of punching a 68- year-old man and stealing his car and then ramming any police car he saw. the officers are expected to survive. the man was wanted for failing to serve a few days in jail for

hold. high-speed rail peer review group says moving ahead could leave california taxpayers on the hook for billions and billions of dollars in the future. high-speed rail authority called the report "deeply flawed." stay tuned. 6:12. brace yourselves and get ready for 5-dollar a gallon gas. what experts say is driving up the prices at the pump. >> we'll have a live update. a burglary suspect hiding for hours on a san francisco famous cliff, the hillside right here. why police aren't making a move. that and much more coming up. almost spring-like temperatures around the bay area today. and no snow falling right now. and no new snow to report. but, of course, they are making plenty if you are headed to the high country. heavenly 21 lifts open, partly cloudy skies. northstar 17 lifts open there. no new snow expected between now and then. and sugar bowl five lifts open, partly cloudy skies, roads are wide open. we'll have more on your weather coming up. sweetheart. we need to talk.

have been on this hillside all night, about four hours ago the suspect apparently yelling out and telling police to turn off the lights. the fire department last night about 6:30 asked him if he was hurt or needed help and he said no. police arrived on the scene at that time and started to try to negotiate with him. so far, unsuccessfully. and right now they are going to wait until the sun comes up before they decide on what to do next. >> so this guy is clinging to something on the side of the hill waiting it out? >> reporter: it would appear so. he was confronted by an apartment manager last night about 6:30, allegedly burglarizing some apartments. police say he has two backpacks with him. they don't know if he is armed
or not. they say it's too dangerous to risk injury to the suspects or officers. >> thank you, bob melrose from kcb radio. let's check of traffic and weather. >> we have an accident in san jose over to the right shoulder. northbound 101 couple of cars involved possible injuries but not too many problems on the main freeway line. northbound 280 through downtown san jose, traffic still looks nice. no delays at 880/237. just some extra volume there. no "meet the press" metering lights at the bay bridge toll plaza. looking good into san francisco. no delays on the lower deck. the altamont pass starting to inch up a bit. the drive time busy, westbound 580 all the way towards 680. some slower speeds approaching the dublin interchange. there is a traffic alert so heads up, westbound 205 past i- 5 commuting to tracy or that

weekend. still those temperatures cold in spots, down into the 30s in some of the valleys, 37 degrees in concord. 39 in livermore. 34 santa rosa. 47 degrees in san francisco. that ridge of high pressure bringing in sunshine, will continue to send this energy well to the north of the bay area. going to make for mild conditions and mostly sun in this skies around the bay area today. soaring temperatures by the afternoon, a good 10 to 12 degrees above average as high as 68 degrees today in morgan hill. 67 mountain view. 64 san mateo. east bay temperatures in the 60s, plenty of sunshine there. 60s inside the bay, cooler at the coast. cooler temperatures on the way into thursday. more of a sea breeze kicking in bringing with it more clouds as a weak system slides by the bay area. warming up and looking good into the weekend. >> nice.

he was human. so i had my phone listed under my dog's name. [ laughter ] >> her junk mail has been piling up but she gets a chuckle every time she gets checks, credit card approvals and college applications in jasper's name. >> does wookky get mail is this. >> he does not. i wish he would pay some of the bills though. that would be nice. >> that would be good. it is 6:26. the iowa caucus decided by 8 votes. the winners the losers and those who might be heading out of town. >> plus, a famous bay area hillside surrounded by police. a man hiding in the bushes. coming up. the manhunt may be over in san jose, but the investigation continues. we'll tell you who they have in custody and what led up to this drama. we have the latest details for you coming up. and one young boy's ethnic background could be his worst enemy. why it's making it very difficult for doctors to cure him of a deadly disease. ,,,,

gil, what are deputies say happened? >> reporter: well, they are happening because of a minor infraction trying to get pulled over but more about that in just a moment. but yeah, it happened less than an hour ago. they don't believe he was armed as they had originally thought. but we're also learning this morning that he has been sent to the hospital because he got hurt during the search. we don't know the extent or the severity of his injuries. it all happened in this apartment complex behind me. the sheriff's deputies tell us that he found him hiding near a shed. they found him with also the help of k-9s and a lot of manpower searching for him in this complex. i counted about 2 or 3 dozen of them here. they don't know if he lived in this complex but the drama began unfolding around 1 a.m. when the man failed to pull over for a sheriff's deputy. >> it started just after 1:00 this morning. one of our sheriff's deputies attempted to make a car stop for just a regular vehicle
infraction. the suspects didn't stop right away, drove slowly for a couple of blocks, finally stopping completely when the driver foot- bailed and that's what started the search. >> reporter: around sergeant cardoza says that that minor infraction may have been the fact that the windows on the car were too dark. when they searched the trunk of the car, they found some stolen goods. the suspect wasn't the only person in the car. there were two other people in the car and they are taken mo custody for questioning. as for the suspect himself, after he gets out of the hospital, chances are he will be charged with resisting arrest and possessing stolen goods. back to you. >> thank you. , gil diaz in san jose. 6:31. we are following a developing story in san francisco. for with 12 hours now a man has been hanging on the side of a cliff. the burglary suspect has been on the eastern face of telegraph hill near chestnut
street. you can see police have spotlights on him. here's a live look. but they are going to wait for him to make a move. they say it's too dangerous on the hillsides because it's so steep. the man landed on the side of the cliff around 6:30 last night. that's when an apartment manager saw him carrying two backpacks. the man jumped over a railing trying to get away at lombard around kearney streets and he ended up hidden here under some heavy brush on the side of the hill. this is just below coit tower. we'll have a live report and update from the city in a few minutes. michele bachmann is now canceling her campaign trip to south carolina after a disappointing sixth place finish for her in iowa. >> she is expected to hold a news conference this morning. rick perry said he is reassessing his campaign. he is going back to texas to think it over. the winner in iowa last night of course, mitt romney edged out rick santorum by 8 votes.
a big seesaw battle went on all night. >> romney won despite campaigning very little in iowa. the close second place finisher is considered a big boost for rick santorum. he has been the big story in the last few days. just weeks ago polls showed him lagging in the single digits while santorum made campaign symptoms in all of iowa's 99 counties. some say he will have a tough time riding the momentum because he lacks a solid national infrastructure but you know what? never say never. >> made a lot of visits to new hampshire, i think 30, he said last night. romney will spend today in new hampshire where the first primary will be held six days from today. he is a heavy favorite in the granite state. they know him well. of course, borders his home in massachusetts. he owns a home on lake winnipesaukee in new hampshire. expected to greet him, this man, senator john mccain, expected to endorse him today. on "the early show" romney defended his record which newt
gingrich has criticized as not being conservative. >> well, he has his facts wrong. i'm sure we'll get a chance during the debate to talk about those things. but i understand people are going to rattle off a list of supposed sins and then you get a chance to go through them one by one. the people of new hampshire know what i faced when i was governor of massachusetts. and they understand that i balanced the budget every year for four years, we cut taxes 19 times. >> and we'll have a live report in 10 minutes from iowa. be sure as to stay with cbs 5 as well as cbssf.com for the very latest in the election. >> do you think he is tired? >> probably up almost all night. >> i bet he flew to new hampshire probably in the middle of the night and he is already shaking hands out there. crazy. >> still has a ways to go. >> he does. 6:34. elizabeth taking a break. we have gianna in for traffic. >> all right. we have a couple things brewing on the roads. first of all, metering lights have been turned on at the bay bridge toll plaza. you can see traffic starting to back up at least to the first
overpass. the cash lanes are where most of those delays are, fastrak a little better. traffic alert in effect for westbound 205 past i-5. this is going to affect travelers into tracy, stockton, lathrop. two big rigs one overturned on the eastbound side, all eastbound lanes blocked so if you are traveling out of the altamont pass towards this way, connecting to 205 to get to i-5 you will see big delays this morning westbound two lanes blocked because of the big rig accident. so westbound commuters also affected but most of the trouble will be for the folks heading out of the altamont pass. we'll continue to keep you updated on that. again, two big rigs involved in the accident. and again, the altamont pass starting to see some delays on the westbound side. looks like slow and go there. that's traffic. here's lawrence. >> gianna, high pressure continuing to be the story. no rain in sight. temperatures going to be well above the average for this time of year, as much as 10 degrees to 12 degrees above the average as high pressure continues to compress the area, temperatures
on the rise. chilly in some spots to start the day, 34 in santa rosa and 39 livermore. by the afternoon, these temperatures soaring under mostly sunny skies, well into the 60s by the afternoon. some places near 70 degrees. looks like tomorrow will start to cool down a little bit. more clouds on the way and a sea breeze, too. temperatures dropping through about friday. then we warm up looks like dry weather and warmer conditions offered to next weekend. that's a look at weather. back to you. a swedish construction firm says its joint venture has won a contract to build the extension it san jose. the contract is worth $347 million. it would be involved in planning and construction of the bart extension from fremont's warm springs station to san jose's berryessa area. that 9.9-mile extension is projected to be finished in spring of 2016. 6:36 now. an old bay area jail has a meeting with a wrecking ball this morning. it's coming down. san francisco's county jail 3 actually sits in the city of
san bruno. it was built back in 1934 off moreland drive. a lawsuit filed in the 1990s claiming unsafe conditions at the jail. a settlement of that suit forcing san francisco to build a new jail that was nearby. the old jail building has been empty for the last six years when the new facility opened for business. now in a developing story we have been following since last night. a burglary suspect in san francisco is still hiding out on telegraph hill. this is the 13th hour now. kcbs radio's bob melrose is on the scene. bob, you probably can't see him yet. >> reporter: it's too dark but they have the lights -- floodlights on the side of the hill. police continue to put flashlights on there, too. they assume he is still there. the last contact was four hours ago when heeled to them to turn the lights off -- when told them to turn the lights off. this all started about 6 p.m. last night when the suspect was
allegedly caught by a building manager near coit tower burglarizing some apartments and he fled over the side of the hill. that's where he has been ever since. the police say it's too dangerous to go in there until sun-up so they can see what's going on. >> is it possible this guy could escape even with the spotlights and big hill or is it all surrounded? >> well, they have the area cordoned off. it's kind of a strange area. it's not flat. the steepest part of telegraph hill, i suppose he probably could have escaped -- he may have gotten out but police believe he is still cornered on the hillside. he talked to the fire department last night before clock and said he didn't need their help and he wasn't hurt. so they have been trying to negotiate and talk to him to come out without them having to go in after him and i'm not sure they are going to do that anyway. but right now, they say time is on their side. they are waiting for the sun to come up. it's -- they believe like i
said that they have the area surrounded and he is in this perimeter. >> that's a strange story to hear about. bob, you talked a little bit about this hill. we can see it's very steep, almost 90 degrees? >> reporter: just about 90 degrees, straight up and down. the police say that during the night they didn't want anything to do with going inside after this man. they don't believe that he is armed but you never know. they certainly didn't want confrontation on a hillside like that. >> understandable. bob melrose from kcbs with the latest on the man trapped on the hillside there, thank you. 6:39 now. two bone marrow drives set for a bay area boy diagnosed with a deadly disease. his unique ethnic background now proving very difficult for doctors to cure him. 4-year-old kyle crawford has aplastic anemia. he could possibly live five to ten more years about aggressive medical treatment but a bone marrow match could cure the young boy. the crawfords have also learned that because their son is half
white and half chinese, the pool of potential donors is very limited. >> well, with any parent, it's like the worst-case scenario. just like unbelievable, undeniable, it was just raw and we just -- you know, it was tearful, devastating. >> doctors say kyle's condition is so severe that his time is running out. the two bone marrow drives will be held one in san francisco, the another san mateo. we have more information under the links section of cbssf.com. if you think you might be a match, if you would like to help, they would love to see you. 6:40 now. yahoo changing things at the top. the familiar face that's now taking over for the struggling company. >> and from apple icon to action figure, we are going to show you steve jobs as you have never seen him before. >> the market opened 10 minutes ago. let's see if the numbers are up. they are not. we are down across the board. the dow down about 18 points.

eastshore freeway. and the golden gate bridge, one of our bright spots not too bad's nice ride out of marin county into san francisco. lawrence has your forecast. >> gianna, you like that sunshine? >> yes! >> you are going to love today. probably the nicest day of the week as we're seeing high pressure building overhead. those temperatures running well above the average for this time of year. and well, just a couple of patches of clouds making their way across the bay area this morning. definitely not seeing that heavy thick fog that we had yesterday. so a weak offshore wind developing, that means we are going to watch those skies clear out nicely and by the afternoon, probably the warmest day of the week. high pressure building in for the weekend after weakening somewhat tomorrow meaning great weather come our way and no rain in sight. outside the sun coming up, lots of sunshine coming our way today and those temperatures, it's chilly in spots so grab your jacket if you are headed out the door. 37 degrees in concord. 39 in livermore. 41 in san jose. and 34 degrees in santa rosa. still that ridge strong enough to bring you plenty of sunshine
