13-year-old Wichita boy arrested in carjacking

Police say a 13-year-old boy has been arrested in a carjacking at a Wichita mall.

Officer Charley Davidson said the boy was arrested Friday at a Wichita home.  Davidson said Monday officers were led to the suspect through witnesses and people involved in a short car chase with Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday.  The stolen car was found after that chase.

Authorities say a 57-year-old JC Penney employee told police she was leaving work Monday when two teens demanded her keys, hit her and drove off in her car.  She suffered minor injuries.  The second suspect hasn’t been found.
