Smith said the suspect is wanted on an active warrant for rape and was spotted driving Sunday morning. Police tried to pull the suspect over, but the suspect fled and led police on a chase. The pursuit ended when the suspect crashed into another vehicle, then fled by foot while carrying what Smith said was “believed to be a handgun” into the Burger King.

Police did not release the suspect’s name, but said he’s wanted on an alleged rape that occurred within the last two days.

Smith said the driver of the vehicle who was hit by the suspect’s vehicle is being treated for minor injuries.
