PEMBROKE, GA (WTOC) -

A man and woman are in custody after a chase Tuesday afternoon that ended on Ash Branch Road and Harry Hagan Road.

It began as a home invasion on Sink Hole Road in Bulloch County. A witness called authorities to report a suspicious car outside the home. When authorities arrived at about 2:30 p.m., that's when the driver of the Honda Accord took off. 

Bulloch County sheriff's deputies and Pembroke police followed the suspects' car. 

On Ga. 119 the suspect put hands up as he was going to stop, according to Pembroke police. Then the man hit the patrol car and the chief who was getting out of his car dodged. Another pursuit ensued.

Pembroke police clocked the Honda at as it entered Pembroke on Ga. Highway 119. Authorities wanted get it stopped before they hit other traffic.

The Pembroke police chief took the lead. He slowed to 35 mph and executed a pursuit intervention technique maneuver. The chase resulted in two patrol cars being damaged.

"Within our policy, we try to end a pursuit as quick as it begins but because of the speed we were unable to feel safe we would be able to execute the put maneuver at the high rate of speed because the child was in the vehicle. If the child wasn't in the vehicle, we may have tried the PIT maneuver a little earlier. Thankful[ly], we waited it out, and it worked out for everybody and no one was hurt," said Sgt. Matt Lynn. 

The driver was taken to Bulloch County jail on charges of burlgary, assault on an officer and reckless driving. The driver did not have a license or registration, according to authorities. 

When officers moved in on the car, they discovered the woman's 5-year-old child sitting in the back seat without a seat belt. 

The female passenger was taken to Bryan County jail on charges of fleeing police. The child is waiting at the Bryan County jail to be picked up by the father who lives in Richmond Hill.

    Relaxing outside this Father's Day afternoon? Showers and thunderstorms will continue drifting across the Coastal Empire and Low Country into the early evening hours. Since these storms aren't moving fast, you can expect water to collect on roadways if you're caught under a downpour. The good news is that we will be much drier by sunset, meaning your dinner grilling plans are still a go!
