CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 17-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly took part in two carjackings, one in Bath Township and the other in Independence.

Police reports say the boy was arrested after a chase by Independence police, aided by the police department’s helicopter, which followed one of the stolen cars as it moved through the East Side at high speed.

Police said the first armed carjacking happened about 8 p.m. at a rest stop on the side of Interstate 77 in Bath Township where the robbers stole a Strongsville woman’s Nissan Rouge.
