One person was arrested after leading Del City police on a brief police chase early Thursday morning.

According to police, a witness called officers to report two people walking around a church and looking into cars. When officers arrived, one person ran away, and the other one got into a car and drove off. That’s when the chase began.

The suspect reportedly crashed the vehicle near Tinker Diagonal and Reno. He then got out of the car and ran into the woods.

Police were able to take the suspect into custody following a short foot pursuit. He was taken to the hospital to be checked for injuries, and will then be taken to jail. He has not been identified. 

Police said they are not looking for the other suspect who ran away. Nothing was taken from the church.
