Three Teens Arrested in Connection to Carjacking
An update on a June 11 incident in south Baldwin Borough.
Baldwin Borough police have arrested three teenagers in connection with a reported carjacking in the early morning of June 11 on Macassar Drive in south Baldwin.
The teens—a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl from Keeport Drive in Baldwin's The Residences of South Hills, and another 16-year-old boy from Homestead Borough—were found later that same Monday traveling in the victim's vehicle—a red 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage, according to Baldwin police Chief Michael Scott.
A Baldwin police officer spotted the red Mirage near the intersection of Streets Run and Brentwood roads on the border of Baldwin and West Mifflin boroughs at around 10:58 p.m. and followed the car until it reached a Whitehall Borough portion of Prospect Road, where the teens were taken into custody.
According to the victim, his car was stolen at gunpoint at around 12:30 a.m. on June 11 in the 400 block of Macassar by three black males wearing white shirts. One of the males was wearing a black hat.
Two of the three teens arrested could be charged with either stealing the car or receiving stolen property, pending an investigation by the Allegheny County Police Department, Scott said. The girl could be charged with receiving stolen property.
A third male remains at large.
