Police arrested two men Friday in connection with a home invasion robbery. The arrests came after a traffic chase, a car crash and pursuit on foot.

At 6:02 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 10 block of Granada Boulevard for a robbery in progress. Police said the suspects entered an apartment and pointed a handgun at the victim, a 23-year-old woman. The suspects demanded property from the victim and left. Witnesses saw them drive away. Within a few minutes of the robbery, police located the suspects’ vehicle. The suspects refused to stop, throwing a handgun and property from the vehicle. They were then involved in an accident at the intersection of Green Meadows and Providence roads. No one was hurt, but the police then chased the suspects on foot.

After a short pursuit, police arrested Matthew D. Hammers, 24, and Sundiala C. Moody, 20, on suspicion of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. Moody was also arrested on suspicion of several traffic offenses. Both men were being held Saturday in Boone County Jail, Hammers in lieu of $60,000 bail, Moody, $55,000.
