MILWAUKEE (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested four, 13-year-old Milwaukee boys after a lengthy car chase that ended in a crash.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy spotted a vehicle wanted in connection with a strong-arm robbery Friday. The deputy went to pull the vehicle over, but the driver fled, sparking a 15-mile pursuit across the city.

Sheriff’s deputies and Milwaukee police eventually boxed in the driver, who crashed into some of the squad cars.

The boys then jumped out and tried to get away on foot, but were apprehended by three deputies and a Milwaukee police officer.

They face felony charges of fleeing and reckless endangerment.

The robberies that prompted the attempted stop are being investigated by Milwaukee police.

Authorities haven’t released the suspects’ names.
