SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police in Utah have arrested several teens they believe held up random victims at knifepoint and say they are looking for one more suspect.

KUTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2dsSFpS ) that police say boys and girls aged 13, 14, 16 and 17 attacked three people near West Valley City.

West Valley Lt. Robert Hamilton says the teens first held a knife to a man’s throat and took his belongings while in a parking lot next to the police station. He says they stole a car and confronted two more people — one who ran off and one man who was injured. Police say they attacked a third person in Kearns.

After police began chasing the stolen car, the teens tried to take off on foot. Hamilton says four of the five suspects were caught.
