A police pursuit prompted by a disturbance at a taco restaurant in central Los Angeles ended in Arlington Heights Saturday morning, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The pursuit started around 3 a.m. in the 3100 block of West Pico Boulevard (map) after two men allegedly attacked the manager of the restaurant with a hammer, police said.

Pursuing officers were able to use a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle. One man was detained, while another ran into an apartment complex near the intersection of Country Drive and South Bronson Avenue (map), according to police.

The scene was cleared before 5 a.m., authorities said, but it was not immediately clear whether the person they were searching for was taken into custody.
