Three teenage suspects were arrested overnight after refusing to stop for police. 

The incident occurred just before 2:00 a.m. and began in the 400 block of Cleveland Avenue in south St. Louis. Police observed a vehicle which had been reported stolen earlier and attempted to curb the vehicle in Tower Grove Park. The vehicle, which occupied five suspects, refused to stop.

The suspects inside exited the vehicle and fled the scene on foot. Three suspects were apprehended during the pursuits. 

A responding officer arrived to the scene but his police vehicle slid in the mud and into the drain, causing minor damage. No injuries were reported. 

The investigation is ongoing.
