The police pursuit began near 16th and Grant Streets in the downtown after the stolen vehicle swerved towards an officer placing stop sticks.

The pursuit ended at Greenwood Ave. and Wood Lane after the vehicle hit a pole and the suspects left the vehicle.

A K-9 unit was called to assist police in locating the third person.
