ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Police say a man accused of beating a woman led officers on a chase in the victim's vehicle before crashing in St. Louis County.

The pursuit ended in the 7900 block of Page Avenue around 4:30 p.m.

Police were notified Saturday that a woman had been attacked and beaten in her Olivette apartment. The woman was reportedly dropped off at her workplace by a male suspect. Co-workers noticed she was badly injured, according to police, and called for an ambulance. The victim was taken to an area hospital in unknown condition.

Meanwhile, police say the male suspect was returning to her apartment when he saw Olivette police cars at the residence. The suspect then reportedly fled from police in the victim's car. A short pursuit ended when the suspect crashed, overturning the vehicle.

The suspect was taken into custody, and is being treated for minor injuries at an area hospital.

Authorities say charges are still pending against the man, and will be applied once an investigation is complete.
