Two teens are in custody, including a convicted felon, in connection with a carjacking Saturday in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood.

Police say two individuals approached a 57-year-old male at about 5:15 p.m. in the 2600 block of N. Bremen Street, pointed a gun at him, demanded his car keys and fled in the victim's Kia Sportage.

Police spotted the vehicle an hour later in the 3300 block of N. 27th Street and a chase ensued after the driver refused to stop.
