View Comments

BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Two carjacking suspects are behind bars after leading police on a high speed chase through Colorado and Nebraska.

The chase started on Friday in Brighton. Police say two men stole a car at gunpoint.

They were posing as potential car buyers and arranged to meet the victim in a Target parking lot.

The chase ended in Kearney, Neb., after the suspects opened fire on police and then wrecked the car in a ditch.

Aleksandr Voznyuk, 22, of Sioux Falls, S.D., was arrested after the chase. Petr Strizheus, 18, of Harrisburg, S.D., initially escaped but was spotted morning at a library in the town of Minden.

Police think the suspect went to the library to try and email associates.

“It’s kind of weird that they would go to a library, but I mean there’s not many places to hide, and I’m glad they caught them,” Stephanie Christian said.
