2 in custody after armed robbery suspects lead KCK police on cross-state chase ending in crash

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Two suspects are in custody Thursday night after an armed robbery led to a high-speed police chase across state lines.

According to KCK police dispatch, officers responded to an armed robbery report at a Kentucky Fried Chicken near 7th Street and Kansas Avenue. A suspect SUV fled the scene.

Police pursued the suspects -- a 43-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman -- and the chase ended after the suspect vehicle crashed head-on into an innocent driver's car near 14th Street and Baltimore Avenue in KCMO.

Both vehicles had significant damage, leaving debris scattered throughout the downtown KC intersection. The second car's entire front end was ripped off, but police say no one was injured in the crash.
