The car was stolen around 2:55 p.m. that same day during an armed robbery in the 3000 block of S. Wentworth Avenue when a suspect approached the victim, a 67-year-old Milwaukee man, struck him, and stole the car. Officers attempted to stop the Crosstour near 49th and Center but it fled from the scene and officers began a pursuit. At 55th and Locust, the car collided with another vehicle. Two people from the Crosstour, a 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, were taken into custody. The driver and the passenger inside the vehicle that was hit were transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
