Arrests made in fatal hit-and-run 

Three people were arrested Wednesday in connection to a high-speed chase that resulted in several hit-and-runs, including one that killed a San Francisco woman in the Financial District last month.

Bridget Klecker was run over by a car that was evading police April 10 near the intersection of Kearney and California streets. The suspects were allegedly attempting to escape from police after committing the final robbery of a crime spree. After the black Toyota Corolla hit Klecker, it struck another pedestrian and car.

Police believe they committed multiple armed robberies throughout The City the week before the fatal hit-and -run and at least three that night.

The three San Francisco residents were arrested after law enforcement — San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Daly City, and Hayward police and the FBI — served several search warrants in San Francisco, Hayward and Santa Rosa.

Robert Pelesauma, 19, Hunter Sagaiga, 19, and Favvesi Koka, 18, were booked into County Jail on suspicion of murder, conspiracy, evading police, possessing a stolen vehicle and multiple robbery charges.
