Alleged robbery ends in Va. crash

Two men who allegedly had robbed an Arlington motel evaded police in a stolen vehicle, crashing it near city hall in Alexandria on Wednesday night, police said.

One suspect then made his way into the city government center, where he was found by police dogs and arrested.

After the theft at the Best Western hotel in the 2400 block of Glebe Road in Arlington, the suspects were pursued by Arlington police into Alexandria, said Det. Crystal Nosal, an Arlington police spokeswoman.

The vehicle crashed near Cameron and N. Fairfax streets, near city hall. A driver whose car was struck was treated for injuries, according to a media release from Alexandria police.

Arlington police arrested the second suspect at the crash site.
