SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police say two teenage boys have been arrested after assaulting a woman during a carjacking.

KING-TV reports the carjacking occurred Saturday afternoon.

Police say the woman was driving through the Highpoint neighborhood when the 14- and 15-year-old boys got into the running vehicle.

Police say the teens pushed the woman out and drove away after assaulting her.

Detective Mark Jamieson told The Associated Press the woman sustained minor injuries.

Police say officers spotted the car leaving. Police say the teens ditched the vehicle near a playfield and ran across a field where a soccer game was underway.

Officers caught one of the boys and two others stopped the other teen.

The teens were taken to the Youth Services Center and are being investigated for robbery.
