On Monday night, two 14-year-olds were arrested after they stole and then crashed a car. 

A 27-year-old man was sitting in his car just after 11pm on the 600 block of Felton St. (between Hamilton and Bowdoin streets) in Portola. The teens approached and the man got out of his car.

The two teenagers grabbed the victim, then stole his wallet, money and cellphone. The other passengers got out of the car, and the teens then stole the vehicle itself. 

The suspects later crashed the car at 3rd and Burke in Bayview, where police arrested the duo. One suspect was injured in the crash.

Anyone who has information about this incident is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
