CHICAGO - Four teenagers were arrested minutes after they allegedly carjacked a man at gunpoint Tuesday in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.
Three boys — ages 15, 16 and 17 — face a felony count each of vehicular highjacking with a firearm, police said.

Minutes later, officers pulled over the stolen car in the 2600 block of South Homan Avenue and arrested the teens, police said.
