(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a man after his Corvette was found inside the Delaware River.

Police were called after people spotted the man driving into the river, submerging the car and swimming to safety.

The man, who was identified as 49-year-old John Kramer, asked witnesses not to call police. However, investigators were notified.

Police identified the suspect after locating the owner of the red 1990 Corvette, who is the estranged wife of the suspect.

Despite having a restraining order against Kramer, the victim said that he took her car and drove it into the river.

The Marine Unit of the Philadelphia Police, arrived around 4:00 p.m. and spent almost three hours removing the Corvette from the water.

Police are looking for the suspect and said that he will face criminal charges for forcing police to risk their own safety to recover the vehicle, which was found 30 feet below the surface of the Delaware River.

The suspect has also violated the restraining order against his estranged wife.
