DENVER — Police arrested two men after crashing a car they say was carjacked earlier Wednesday.

The 2013 Dodge Avenger was stolen at gunpoint in the 900 block of South Perry around 7:30 a.m.

About seven hours later, a Denver officer spotted the vehicle and began to pursue the suspects. 

The chase ended after the suspects crashed the vehicle in the 700 block of South Lipan.

The two men were taken into custody after a short foot pursuit. No injuries were reported.
