CHARLACK, Mo. ( -- Two suspects are charged with crashing into a St. Ann officer's cruiser after one of them carjacked a woman on April 14.

Eddie Lee Edwards

Edwards carjacked a woman in the Bridgeton Schnucks' parking lot.

A police pursuit began around 8:45 p.m. after an armed carjacking at a Bridgeton Schnucks on Sunday.

Police say 22-year-old Eddie Edwards confronted a woman who had just loaded her groceries into her blue 2013 Chevy Cruse. Edwards allegedly threatened to shoot her and took her key fob and purse before driving away in her car and leading officers on a chase.

Isaiah Forman

Police say Forman is responsible for driving the car into the police cruiser.

Police say Edwards picked up 21-year-old Isaiah Forman. Forman got into the car's driver seat and crashed into a St. Ann police officer's vehicle head-on at Martin Luther King Drive and Ogden.

The pursuit went through St. Ann and ended in Charlack, which the St. Ann Police Department patrols. 

Officials said the officer, who was taken to a hospital, is gong to be okay.

Edwards and Forman were taken into custody.

Edwards is charged with first-degree robbery and Forman is charged with second-degree assault.

This is the second police chase in a week where a St. Ann patrol car was struck. The police chief told News 4 his officers will chase criminals to send a message: Stay out of St. Ann.
