DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -

Two men were arrested early Wednesday after robbing a woman at gunpoint and leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase, according to Daytona Beach police.

Police said a woman was in her car at a McDonald's on N. Atlantic Avenue when a man with a gun approached her and demanded cash.

After handing over her money, the woman called 911 and gave police a description of the culprits and the car they were driving.

According to police, the car was spotted by a Volusia County deputy on I-4 and took off at a high rate of speed.

After reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph, the pursuit went into Seminole County.  Police then used Stop Sticks to disable the green Honda on State Road 417.

Police said three men ran from the car after it crashed.  Two of the culprits were found after a brief search and placed under arrest, according to police.

The third person in the car was not immediately located.  Detectives said they will be looking at surveillance and dash-cam video to help with their investigation.
