Durham County deputies searched an area off Cheek Road early Tuesday for a suspect who they said robbed a man outside a strip club on Angier Avenue and stole the man's car.
Deputies had chased the stolen car after seeing it on South Miami Boulevard at Ellis Road, after the 2:30 a.m. holdup in the parking lot of Diamond Girls at 3724 Angier Ave.
The chase went along U.S. 70, then onto Cheek Road, where the male suspect left the car and ran on foot, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said.
A Durham police K-9 joined in the search, but the suspect eluded authorities and was still being sought later Tuesday.
