Chicago police have arrested a 15-year-old boy after he allegedly assaulted a 71-year-old man and stole his car Friday.
Police say the teen attacked the elderly man in southeast Chicago, causing serious injury, before taking the man’s vehicle. Police arrested the teen moments after the incident.
Authorities later confirmed that the same teen had been seen driving a vehicle stolen from a 70-year-old woman earlier in the week, according to CBS Chicago.

It is against police policy to identify or release photos of minors when charged with crimes, and police have not identified the victim.
