We're learning new information about the two men who led Houston police officers on an hour-long chase around the city on Wednesday.

Just after noon, an man armed with a revolver held up a Trustmark Bank in northwest Houston. He jumped in a gray van with another suspect and led police on a chase that ended on the south side.

During the course of that chase, officers deployed at least four spike strips. The van ended up loosing both passenger side tires before finally stopping on Scott Street, where the two men surrendered.

Robert Hanswen, 24, and Brackshear Booker, 48, both face aggravated robbery charges.

No one was injured in the chase.
