Police: Man Crashes Into Burnsville House After Chase

BURNSVILLVE, Minn. (WCCO) — Burnsville police are investigating Friday after they arrested a man, who, after trying to rob a house, fled the scene of the robbery in a SUV and crashed it into a house that hosted a private day care service.

Around noon, the suspect had attempted to rob a house located on the 1400 block of E. McAndrews Road, but when he was interrupted by a resident of the house, he fled the scene, police said. Before fleeing, however, the suspect pointed a gun at the resident, who was calling police.

After the suspect fled, the resident then got into a car and chased the suspect, police said. The suspect then crashed his SUV into a day care home near the intersection of 134th Street and Burncrest Court. The suspect tried to run off, but was apprehended by police a short time after.

No one in the day care house was hurt. The children and the day care provider were moved to a nearby school.

Police will continue to investigate.

    Police are considering the scene “very active.”

    Oh man, I’m coming down! I have a few new dance steps I have been working on and a “very active” scene is not always that easy to find…
