Teen leads police on foot chase before arrest

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. Simi Valley police said an employee at a pizzeria on the 1800 block of Royal Avenue noticed a group of loiterers in the rear of the business.

When the employee went outside, the boy, whose name was not released because of his age, was sitting in a car he allegedly tried to steal, police said.

The boy left the car behind and ran from the scene, only to be found a few minutes later by police just east of Erringer Road, authorities said.

Police said they arrested the boy without incident.

No one was injured.
