Two men were arrested in Chinatown on Thursday morning after a 45-minute, high-speed chase that began in Long Beach.

Police responded to an attempted break-in just after 5 a.m. at a business in the 4600 block of Virginia Road.

A private security guard confronted the suspects, according to police, and they tried to run him down with their vehicle. The security guard fired at the suspects.

Long Beach police arrived on the scene as the suspects fled, and a pursuit ensued.

The chase continued on the 710 freeway and several other freeways at high rates of speed.

The California Highway Patrol took over the pursuit, which came to an end in Chinatown around 5:50 a.m. without incident.

The suspects were taken into custody and face charges of attempted burglary as well as assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
