Two men arrested after brief police chase, crash

- Two forgery suspects were arrested Monday at the end of a brief police chase in Northridge that ended with a crash.

Two off-duty officers working security at a Citibank branch in the 19300 block of Rinaldi Street in Porter Ranch saw the suspects run out of the bank, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The men got into a black Mercedes-Benz sedan and drove off, prompting a three-mile pursuit by Los Angeles police. The Mercedes rear-ended two cars at Tampa Avenue and Nordhoff Street, where the suspects were arrested. Their names were not immediately released.

No serious injuries were reported as a result of the crash, according to Officer Mike Lopez of the LAPD's Media Relations Section, who said the witnesses initially reported what they thought was a bank robbery.
