ST. LOUIS ( – A suspect is in custody after a carjacked vehicle crashed in north St. Louis.

A woman told police she was exiting her Volkswagen Passat in the 3600 block of N. 22nd Street around 1 a.m. when two suspects approached her and demanded the vehicle. After being notified of the crime, officers spotted the stolen vehicle parked near N. Market and Prairie and attempted to stop it. 

The vehicle drove away from officers and crashed into a utility pole at Page and Sarah. The suspect ran from the vehicle but was taken into custody following a short foot chase.

No one was injured during the carjacking or crash.
