ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A teenager was arrested following an early morning attempted carjacking in the Central West End.

According to St. Louis police, the 17-year-old suspect got into a white sedan after attempting to carjack a man in the 4500 block of West Pine around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday. Around the same time and in the same area, officers spotted a white sedan being driven recklessly and attempted to stop it. The white sedan refused to stop for the officer and instead sped away, eventually crashing into a tree in Fountain Park.

Three suspects ran from the crashed car and officers chased after them. Two of the suspects were able to escape. The 17-year-old suspect was taken into custody. Police said two guns were found in the suspects’ car.
