DALLAS -- Police are looking for an armed robbery suspect who robbed a cell phone store and led police on a chase before crashing a car and fleeing on foot Friday night.

A police spokesman said they received a robbery call at 7:49 p.m. from the AT&T store in the 8200 block of Abrams Road. They said a man wearing a ski mask robbed the store at gunpoint.

Dallas police spotted a vehicle matching the description of the one fleeing the robbery scene traveling southbound on U.S. 75 at Hall Street and began following the car. Officers then attempted to stop the car while it was traveling southbound on Interstate 45 at Lamar Street, but the vehicle took off.

Officers saw several stolen phones being tossed out the windows during the pursuit.

The vehicle crashed at Hampton Road and Red Bird Lane, and two suspects got out. Jamarion James, 21, was arrested at the scene; the other escaped.

Officers searched searching the area near the crash for the second suspect. They have not released a description of that person.

James was being held on charges of aggravated robbery and evading arrest. Bond was set at $200,000.

Police said the investigation into the robbery and circumstances surrounding the chase and crash continues. The phones that were seen being thrown from the suspects' vehicle have not been recovered.
