CHICAGO -- Two teenagers are in the hospital after a police chase involving a stolen car.

Police say a 14 -and-15-year old approached a 45-year-old man sitting in a Chevy Malibu on the 2600 block of South King Drive around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

One teen revealed a hand gun and demanded the man exit the vehicle. The other teen demanded the man's shoes.

Police spotted the carjacked vehicle moving south bound and state troopers assisted with the pursuit.

The teens weren't seriously hurt. They were taken to Comers Children's Hospital and are said to be in custody and in stable condition.
