A sedan being chased by police crashed Thursday evening in Hollywood near the Hollywood & Highland complex, where at least one suspect was taken into custody and one was being sought.

The chase began about 7:40 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department, although it was unclear exactly where it started.

Officers from the LAPD’s Wilshire Division were following the vehicle when an assault on a police officer occurred, according to department spokesman Officer Mike Lopez.

Lopez was unable to immediately confirm if the alleged assault involved the suspect vehicle crashing into a police cruiser.

According to CBS2, the vehicle was driven at high speed, at times in oncoming lanes, and came to a crashing halt in the area of Highland Avenue and Yucca Street.

At least one suspect ran into the Hollywood & Highland retail complex in the heart of the Hollywood tourist zone and was being sought by officers, including a K-9 unit, according to reports from the scene.

The LAPD confirmed that one suspect was in custody and another was outstanding, but according to KCAL9, two were in custody and one was at large.

The suspects were in a stolen Mercedes-Benz, the station reported.

No officers were injured, Lopez said.
