Police responded to the robbery at 3:50 p.m. and immediately located the suspect vehicle on Enola Road in the area of Summerdale Plaza. Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled at a high rate of speed, according to police.
Police said they pursued the vehicle through Susquehanna Township and into uptown Harrisburg. Police said Johnson bailed out of the vehicle and was apprehended in the area of Shamokin and Susquehanna streets. ABC27 News reported that the police chase had ended with a crash, which led to Johnson fleeing the vehicle.
