MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

We are learning more about the events surrounding the arrest of two women after a robbery and police chase in Montgomery Monday.

Police Capt. Regina Duckett confirmed Tuesday the two suspects are Precious Kristina Goldsmith, 21, and Monica Shonta Fuller, 25. Both women are facing a charge of robbery second-degree. Goldsmith is also facing a charge of attempting to elude.

According to court documents, the robbery happened around 4:15 p.m. outside Target in the Eastchase area. Fuller and Goldsmith allegedly stole a victim’s purse from a shopping cart and then, while attempting to flee, hit the victim’s head.

A victim and a witness to the robbery were injured, court documents say.

After fleeing the scene of the robbery, officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but according to Duckett, the driver refused to stop.

While fleeing from officers, documents say, the vehicle hit another vehicle on the Northern Boulevard. Two people inside the vehicle were injured during the crash.

Duckett says the vehicle later crashed into a church on Arden Road. Church officials say the crash caused minor structural damage to an awning attached to the church and a concrete bench.
