WATERTOWN, S.D.–Two juveniles face charges following a foot pursuit by police on Friday morning.

The investigation began just before 7 a.m., when police took a report of a car that had been stolen from southeast Watertown.

Two hours later, an officer spotted the vehicle traveling in southwest Watertown. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, and after a short distance, the vehicle stopped after hitting another vehicle in a driveway.

Both occupants fled and were arrested following a foot chase.

Both are 17 years old. Charges include Possessing a Stolen Vehicle, Underage Possession of Alcohol, Eluding, Driving Without a Valid License, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and DUI.
