Posted at 5:39 PM, Jan 01, 2018

A woman is held up at gun point for her vehicle allegedly by a boy not even old enough to drive.

Omaha Police said a woman inside her van was held at gunpoint by three black men near 47th and Miami streets at about 10 a.m. Monday. Officers caught up with it at 36th Street and Grand Avenue before the group of suspects led them on a chase. The suspects ditched the van near 56th Street and Ellison Avenue, and fled.

Police quickly took three suspects into custody. All of them were juvenile boys and booked at the Douglas County Youth Center for robbery. One of the suspects, a 14-year-old, was also arrested for use of a weapon and flight to avoid arrest. 

Two other juveniles were cited with unlawful occupancy and released. Police are looking into whether the suspects were connected to any other carjackings.
