Suspect allegedly in stolen car crashes into Gold's Gym

A driver, who was allegedly in a stolen car, plowed into a gym in North Hollywood Monday and was later arrested.

The crash happened after 9:15 a.m. at the Gold's Gym located on Laurel Canyon Blvd., between Erwin and Sylvan streets.

According to LAPD Lt. Greg Morgan, officers spotted a suspicious vehicle on Laurel Canyon Blvd. The vehicle drove away and then somehow crashed into the rear of the gym.

The driver jumped out of the car and fled on foot. He ran through an alley and into a nearby office building with officers chasing behind him. 

People inside the building ran outside when they saw the suspect enter, Lt. Morgan said. Officers set up a perimeter and contained the area as the suspect continued to barricade inside. 

Police say the suspect was in a stolen car. 

An employee inside the gym was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. 

Officers were later able to find the driver and take him into custody.
