MOLINE, Ill. (KWQC) - UPDATE: Two bank robbery suspects are in custody after leading authorities on a high-speed chase through Moline and Rock Island Wednesday afternoon.
Just before 3:00pm, Moline Police were notified of two bank robbery suspects on 16th Street that seemed to be preparing to commit another bank robbery.
Police were told two men were seen getting items from their vehicle and tried to enter a Wells Fargo Bank, but the manager at the time locked the doors to stop them from entering.
When multiple officers got to the scene, the suspects took off in a black 2006 Pontiac heading eastbound where they hit a Moline squad car and damaging it.
A high-speed chase led officers into Rock Island and Rock Island police were notified.
A citizen then notified Rock Island Police saying they saw the suspects in the 3300 block of 14th Street Court.
Moline Police, Rock Island Police, and Rock Island County Sheriff's Department responded to the area and set up a perimeter, where the suspects were then caught.
29-year-old Alexander J. Quick of Maysville, Iowa was arrested for Aggravated Fleeing/Eluding a Peace Officer, Criminal Damage to State Supported Property and Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer as well as unrelated warrants out of Iowa.
31-year-old Michael V. Johnston was arrested for Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer, Criminal Damage to State Supported Property and unrelated warrants out of the Iowa Department of Corrections for Parole Violations.
Both Quick and Johnston are being held in the Rock Island County Jail without bond pending review by the Rock Island County State's Attorney's office.
UPDATE: Police say the pursuit ended in Rock Island near 17th Street and 34th Ave. They have two male suspects in custody and also recovered a knife.
