Four suspects from an earlier robbery were in custody after they led police on a chase from the Near North Side to the Loop during rush hour Thursday evening.

About 2:40 p.m., four people grabbed items from a store in the 1600 block of North Wells Street then threw an employee to the ground as they ran to a gray Nissan waiting outside, according to Chicago Police.

Officers later spotted the car near Chicago Avenue and State Street and tried to stop the Nissan, police said.

The driver led officers on a chase and the Nissan hit several vehicles before it was stopped just before 6:30 p.m. near Randolph Street and Stetson Avenue, police said.

No one was injured during the chase, police said.

The four in the car were taken into custody and charges are pending.
