PEORIA (25 News Now) - A 15-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy were arrested after allegedly fleeing from Peoria Police Saturday.

Police spokesperson Semone Roth says that on Saturday, police observed a reportedly stolen vehicle traveling south on Union from Moss. Officers followed the vehicle and requested more officers to respond.

At around 7:43 p.m., officers attempted a traffic stop at Richard Allen and Romeo B Garrett, but the subjects failed to stop and fled at a high rate of speed.

A short while, later, the vehicle was located in the 800 block of W. Hurlburt and officers observed two juveniles flee from the vehicle on foot; they were later caught and detained.

The 15-year-old was arrested for possession of a stolen motor vehicle and resisting police and was transported to the juvenile detention center.

The 14-year-old was arrested for criminal trespass to a vehicle and resisting police.

He was later released to his family.
