According to the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office, police were called after a suspect carjacked a victim at knifepoint near Shawnee. The victim told officers that a cellphone was left in the vehicle, and police used the GPS to track down the suspect. 

Cleveland County deputies reportedly spotted the vehicle near the Pottawatomie County/Cleveland County line, and that's when the chase began.
