According to police, officers were called to help other departments with a chase that entered the city at about 3:20 a.m. Friday, and the involved vehicle had been reported stolen in Minneapolis.

In addition, the two people inside were believed to be armed and were wanted in Ramsey County for burglary and assaulting an officer.
