The suspect vehicle continued to run from officers but eventually stopped at the intersection of 45th Street and Avenue M where the driver stopped the vehicle.

Officers spoke with the caller who reported they were doing laundry at an unknown apartment complex when a Hispanic male approached and asked to use the victim's phone.

A short time later, two black males approached the victims and the Hispanic male.

No one was injured during the offense.
