ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say three officers were injured while pursuing a suspect, who is now in custody.

Authorities say the officers were responding to a domestic violence call Saturday afternoon.

Officer Fred Duran says upon their arrival, the suspect had fled the area in a car when they tried to approach him.

A chase ensued and ended with a head-on crash with a police vehicle near Coors and Central.

The officers were treated and released from a hospital.

According to Duran, the suspect was arrested without incident.

However, the suspect was found wearing body armor including a bullet proof vest.

Police have not released the suspect’s name.
