An Enfield man is facing charges after he led police on a chase Monday afternoon.

Connecticut State Police said they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on I-91 north near exit 45 on Monday when the driver fled.

The chase continued down I-91, onto the exit 47 east off ramp.

Police said the operator, later identified as 21-year-old Javon Alston, fled on foot into a wooded area.

About two hours later police captured Alston.

He is facing numerous charges, including third-degree larceny, interfering with an officer, reckless driving, evading responsibility, operating without a driver’s license.

He’s expected to appear in court on Tuesday.
