11 News is working to learn more about early morning police activity near Nevada Avenue and Winters. Roads were blocked off in the area where the chase ended, at El Paso Drive and Prospect. Those roads were open again around 10:30 a.m.

At around 6 a.m. this morning police surrounded a man's home in order to serve an arrest warrant. The suspect then fled from his home and jumped into a white SUV. That's when police began their pursuit.

At this time we do know the suspect was wanted for sexual assault, felony menacing and kidnapping charges.
