An armed robbery suspect led police on a chase Thursday in the Marina del Rey area before bailing out of his vehicle and running into an apartment building.

The chase began about 1:25 p.m., when an air unit spotted the suspect’s SUV in the area of Mindanao Way and Lincoln Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The suspect made his way onto the Marina (90) Freeway into the Culver City area before circling back to the marina and bailing out of the vehicle in the 13900 block of Panay Way and ran into an apartment complex. Police established a perimeter as they searched for the suspect.

An LAPD helicopter hovered overhead as patrol cars with red lights and sirens raced through the usually quiet streets next to the water.

No details about the crime that prompted the chase were immediately available and the suspect had not been found as of late afternoon.
