SACRAMENTO COUNTY -- Teenagers led police officers on a chase in Sacramento County Sunday in a car they allegedly stole at gunpoint.

Sgt. Tony Turnbull with the Sacramento Sheriff's Department reports a Sacramento woman was carjacked at gunpoint in the driveway of her own home around 10:30 a.m. by three boys in their mid-teens near Vintage Park Drive and Waterman Road.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, spoke to FOX40.

"Just give them whatever they want because it's not worth getting hurt for. And I'm glad I didn't get hurt at all," she said.

The teenagers then drove the car to an area near Highway 99 and Grant Line Road, where officers found them around 12:45 p.m.

Officers chased the stolen vehicle until it crashed near Elk Grove Florin and Calvine roads.

All three suspects ran from the car, but were detained after officers set up a perimeter in the area.

Police are still trying to figure out what the teens were doing in the two hours between when they allegedly stole the car and when they were caught. They are looking into several armed robberies that took place during that time frame.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

Officials have not reported the exact ages or identities of the teenagers or the victim.
