Dispatch Call Script
Dispatch: Any unit able to handle, a citizen reports a 211 in progress, 437 Eighth Street. Unit to handle, Code Three, identify.
Cole Phelps: 11K, responding. Go ahead.
Dispatch: 11K, a citizen reports a 211 in progress at 437 Eighth Street at Bristol Hotel. Suspects are linked with previous 211s. 11 King, Code Three.
After a brief cut scene, Phelps and his partner Bekowsky enter the hotel weapons readied. The robber runs away and Phelps must chase him down. The robber will run out to the back and jump in a car and drive off, as he does quickly jump into a near-by car (preferably the Cord 810 Softtop) and chase him. You go past Warner Bros Studio and two patrol cars try to block their way in Pershing Square. After the player takes a left then a right, a patrol car will come from the front which makes the suspects escape to Hotel Clark Garage.
They will crash into a column, leave the car and make their way up top. Note: an easy way to kill them is if you are able to succesfully turn to the garage, you can just run both of them over. Once up top there will be two suspects there firing at you (one has a revolver and the other has a shotgun). Take cover and take them out. Also when you spawn outside after the mission the villains' car will not spawn but the garage makes it a good place to find cars for the Auto Fanatic Achievement/Trophy.
