Domestic violence call leads to police chase in west Phoenix

Authorities used a grappler device overnight to end a police chase in west Phoenix, officials said.

Police in Phoenix, Glendale, and troopers with the Arizona Dept. of Public Safety were all involved in a pursuit that ended near 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

Glendale officers were responding to a domestic violence call at a nearby home just before midnight on Aug. 24 after a family member reported that a man armed with a knife forced his ex-girlfriend into a truck.

The suspect's truck was found, and the driver led officers on a chase. 

"Officers were able to locate the vehicle around 1 a.m., which resulted in a multi agency pursuit," read a statement from Glendale PD.

Eventually, the grappler was deployed to stop the vehicle.

No one was injured, and the man was arrested. The suspect's identity has not been released.

Editor's note: Glendale PD originally stated that the 911 caller reported that the man was threatening to shoot his girlfriend, but later amended their story.
