LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Two suspects who allegedly carjacked a pickup truck at gunpoint and led police on a short pursuit into a South Los Angeles neighborhood were in custody today, authorities said.

The truck crashed into a utility pole at Central and Slauson Avenues around 11 p.m. Sunday, and the two suspects ran away, said Officer J. Boverie of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Newton Station.

A perimeter was set up, and officers assisted by police dogs arrested an adult and a juvenile within two hours, Boverie said. They were expected to be booked on suspicion of assault and carjacking, Boverie said.

Crews were sent to repair the utility pole.
