Gontray Brown of Rochester is charged with reckless endangerment and attempted assault.

Officers say it started with a robbery outside a convenience store on Saint Paul Street. Police say Brown led them on a chase for five blocks before he tried to turn around and hit another car. When officers got out and went toward him, they say he backed into a police cruiser.
