Authorities say a Phoenix police cruiser and an Arizona Department of Public Safety vehicle collided while pursuing a minivan full of people following an armed robbery at a convenience store.

The crash happened early Tuesday in downtown Phoenix. No serious injuries were reported and authorities say they were able to take the suspects - several minors and one adult - into custody after tracking them down at an apartment complex.
    
Police haven't identified the suspects, but say the adult suspect is a man.
    
Authorities say the suspects were wanted for armed robberies at a Circle K and 7-11 in the Maryville area.
