A suspect in a robbery earlier this week was taken into custody today after initially refusing to stop when a patrol vehicle tried to pull him over on a motorcycle, according to Metro Police.

A Metro air unit started tracking the motorcyclist about 10:50 a.m. in the area of Charleston Boulevard and Spencer Street, and he was taken into custody near Rainbow Boulevard and Sunset Road, police said.

It is believed the man is responsible for an armed robbery on Wednesday, police said. No additional information was immediately released.
