Police say a man suspected of a home invasion and assault led officers on a chase last night in northwest Harris County.

It ended just before 11pm at a home on Elm Tree Estates and Prairie Village when the suspect sent the car crashing into a garage. That driver has still not been found.

Earlier in the evening, sheriff's deputies took a call about a a home invasion, in which someone in the home was attacked. A deputy arrived to see the suspect leaving, so he chased him through the subdivision.

According to the sheriff's office, the suspect bailed out of his vehicle, allowing the car to go into the house. The man then rolled under the deputy's patrol unit.

Still, he jumped up, and took off.

"At this point, he's definitely facing evading charges, and assault on the other call," said Sgt. Mike Harvey with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

According to investigators, the suspect knew an individual at the house he broke into. Authorities believe the suspect changed clothes at some point. They searched, using an air and K-9 unit, but never found him.
