    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A robbery suspect has been accused of leading Des Moines police on a car chase before crashing into a garage.

    The Des Moines Register reports the man led the car chase Tuesday afternoon on the city's east side. Police say the man crashed into a garage then hopped a fence to escape. He was arrested a short time later.

    Police had been responding to a report of a man with a knife trying to rob a home. Police tried to pull over a truck that matched the description of the suspect's vehicle. The truck fled.

    The driver of the truck later made a hard turn during the chase and clipped the garage. No home resident was located.

    The suspect's name has not been released.
