An Arizona bank robbery suspect is accused of assaulting an FBI agent following a high-speed chase in New Mexico.

According to a federal complaint, 39-year-old Zachary Stephen Reeder of Marana, Arizona,   faces assault on a peace officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon charges.

Authorities arrested Reeder on Thursday night following a high-speed pursuit in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Police responding to reports of a possibly armed and dangerous suspect spotted Reeder and another person in a stolen Acura.

The two suspects attempted to flee setting off a dramatic 45-minute pursuit.

In an attempt to evade arrest, Reeder’s car reportedly rammed an unmarked vehicle driven by an FBI task force officer.

The chase came to an abrupt end with a crash and a brief foot chase.

FBI agents arrested a second suspect identified as 28-year-old  Phoenix resident Cassandra Webb.

According to the Las Cruces-Sun, Reeder and Webb are suspects in several bank robberies in Arizona.

FBI officials said Webb admitted during questioning that she drove the getaway car while Reeder robbed banks at gunpoint last week in Mesa, Arizona.

Investigators discovered a shotgun, pistol, and methamphetamine while executing search warrants of Reeder’s motel room he rented and car.

Both suspects remain in custody on no bond at the Doña Ana County Detention Center.

Reeder is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Las Cruces on Monday.
