CHARLOTTE — Two people were arrested Friday afternoon after a pursuit ended in a crash in northwest Charlotte, police said.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers tried to stop a vehicle linked to an armed robbery investigation at about 4:25 p.m. but the driver kept going.

Officers started a pursuit and about 10 minutes later, a passenger jumped out on Rogers Street and ran but was arrested shortly after.

The driver, Bryan Calderon, 24, drove off trying to get away from the police but he sideswiped a vehicle and crashed into another at Rozzelles Ferry and Hoskins roads, officials said.

Calderon was arrested and faces several charges including, robbery with a dangerous weapon, misdemeanor larceny, hit and run with property damage and leaving the scene, and resist/delay/obstruct. More charges may also be pending.
