A pair of shoplifting suspects were arrested after speeding away from officers and then crashing into another car, according to police.

Officers responded to the Kohl's store in northeast Portland's Gateway District at 9 p.m. Saturday on the report of a theft in progress.

Store security provided police with descriptions of the suspects and an associated car.

An officer arrived at the store, spotted the suspects' vehicle and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Police said the driver failed to stop and led officers on a chase that they had to abandon due to public safety concerns.  

A short time later, an officer at Southeast 102nd Avenue and Washington Street came upon a two-vehicle crash involving the shoplifting suspects.

Police said the suspects ran away, but were caught a short time later. The driver, identified as 36-year-old Christopher Jones II, was booked in the Multnomah County Jail on charges including felon in possession of a restricted weapon, reckless driving, attempt to elude by vehicle, attempt to elude on foot and fourth-degree assault.

The passenger, 36-year-old Tiffany Goudy, is facing charges of attempt to elude on foot and second-degree theft.

Two people in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
