SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials say a high-speed pursuit that ended in Sioux Falls began with an assault and abduction attempt at a convenience store in Parker.

Turner County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Get N’ Go about 10 p.m. Wednesday and encountered the suspect’s SUV.

Officials say a woman was able to get out of the vehicle before the driver fled.

Authorities say spike strips were laid on the road three different times as the pursuit reached speeds of 100 mph.

The driver was finally stopped and arrested after a brief foot chase in Sioux Falls, some 30 miles from where the pursuit began.
