Police say they arrested two teens they say carjacked a woman at gunpoint Saturday.

Investigators say the woman reported the carjacking around 10:40 p.m. Saturday.  She said two men pointed a gun at her and took her Dodge Caravan.

Less than four hour later, officers spotted the van and stopped it near 24th and Ohio streets, according to police.

Two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old try to run, but were taken into custody.  Police say one teen was released to his mother, one was booked into the Douglas County Youth Dentention Center and the third was released with no charges.
