HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
Pasadena police have taken a sexual assault suspect into custody after they say he led officers on a vehicle chase that ended in southeast Houston.
Officers arrived to the Pasadena Inn & Suites on Thursday afternoon to arrest a suspect with several felony warrants for sexual assault of a child. Because they had considered him armed and dangerous, the officers were staged in an area to prevent the suspect from driving away.
The suspect was able to drive from the parking lot in a black sport utility vehicle as officers arrived and led them on a vehicle chase for almost 20 minutes.
After traveling southbound on Interstate 45 (Gulf Freeway) near the 610 Loop, the suspect drove onto the State Highway 225 eastbound service road.
The chase ended on State Highway 225 near the Goodyear Drive exit and police took the suspect into custody.
