Lakewood-Busti Police arrested a man Tuesday accused of threatening to kill a woman and then stealing her car.

Police responded to the Chautauqua Mall for a report of a Domestic incident Tuesday.

Investigators say the pregnant victim sated 30-year-old Travis Spencer pinned her against a wall and threatened to kill her. 

Spencer also reportedly made the victim get into the vehicle. However, as she got in, police say he took off, causing her to fall.

Police later discovered the suspect driving the victim's vehicle near the Lakewood Village Center. Police tried to stop the suspect there but he reportedly sped off.

The suspect then led officers on a pursuit in the direction of Route 394 westbound. Police had to use deflation devices to slow down the suspect.

The suspect pulled over in the Town of Westfield and was taken into custody.
