LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun & KSNV) -- A school crossing guard was injured while working today after a woman allegedly shoved him to the ground and stole his car, Metro Police said.

Metro responded to the incident at about 8:30 a.m. at Antelope Way and Pinedale Avenue, near Helen Marie Smith Elementary School.

A man and a woman were working as crossing guards when a woman attempted to steal their car which was parked nearby, Metro said.

When the male crossing guard attempted to stop her, she allegedly shoved him to the ground and drove away at a high speed, Metro said. The man was transported to Mountain View Hospital with a minor injury.

The woman crashed the vehicle at a nearby street and then attempted to run before citizens detained her until police could arrive to arrest her, Metro said.

The woman was booked into Clark County Detention Center. Metro is working to determine the woman’s identity.

The suspect, now identified as 26-year-old Veronica Gonzalez, drove through the neighborhood at a high rate of speed and collided with another vehicle.

Gonzalez attempted to leave the scene on foot and was detained by citizens in the area. She was arrested for robbery and grand larceny auto.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
