ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man is in jail after allegedly carjacking a vehicle from two teenage girls and leading Albuquerque police on a high-speed chase.

Police spokesman Fred Duran says the incident began early Sunday near Pat Hurley Park.

A 17-year-old girl and her 18-year-old friend reported a suspect with three knives banging on their car windows and yelling.

The victims exited the vehicle and the suspected demanded the car keys.

Officers located the vehicle, which then fled a traffic stop.

The suspect drove to The Downs Casino and tried to run inside.

Police were able to take 42-year-old Quentin Quintana into custody.

He has been booked on charges of armed robbery, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and other offenses.

Authorities say Quintana has a prior arrest record dating back to 1995.
