PRINCETON - A man has been arrested after allegedly robbing another man, then leading police on a high-speed chase through multiple counties.

The Sherburne County Sheriff's Office says it all started just after 2:00  a.m. Monday in the Princeton Park and Ride lot in Baldwin Township.

An 18-year-old Princeton man told deputies that another man approached him in the lot, pulled out a knife and robbed him of his cell phone, wallet and other personal property.

The suspect took off in a pickup. A vehicle matching the description was spotted shortly after in Mille Lacs County. A chase ensued that went through multiple counties including Benton and Morrison - including through St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids.

The Sauk Rapids Police Chief says a fence along Mississippi Heights Elementary was damaged by the suspect's vehicle during the chase.

The suspect was eventually caught and identified as 27-year-old Joshua Vossen. A Sherburne County spokesman says Vossen was brought back to Sherburne County to face charges.
