HOUSTON – Two carjacking suspects were taken into custody following a police chase which ended in southeast Houston Monday morning, according to Houston police.

Investigators said the men ambushed a physical therapist in the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 8500 block of Broadway.

The victim said the thieves ran up behind him, pointed a pistol in his face and then took his keys and wallet before stealing his Lexus SUV.

Police spotted the suspects in the stolen SUV around 10 a.m., and a short chase ensued.

The suspects crashed the vehicle at Fauna at Telephone, then bailed out of the vehicle and began running. Police set up a perimeter and apprehended both suspects a short while later.
