KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police say they have completed their review of the arrest of a carjacking suspect earlier this year but would not release the results.

Video from SKYTRACKER appears to show officers beating the suspect after he led them on a chase.  

The man allegedly stole a woman's car at gunpoint on May 2 on the 8700 block of Winner. Police say they were interviewing the victim when the suspect returned to the scene, which led to police chasing him in the stolen vehicle.

The chase lasted for about 30 minutes. During the chase, the suspect drove over sidewalks, lawns, and what appeared to be a park. KCPD said the suspect "drove recklessly and endangered numerous lives." 

The chase ended near 9th and Uttley when the suspect jumped out of the still-moving car and tried to run from police. The suspect tripped and fell, and officers took him into custody. 

SKYTRACKER video shows officers hitting and kneeing the suspect while he was on the ground during the arrest. 

SKYTRACKER footage showed the suspect being taken from the scene in an ambulance.

Troy Russell Anderson, 32, of Independence was later charged with first-degree robbery, resisting arrest and armed criminal action.
