MILWAUKEE -- Five people were arrested Tuesday after police said they carjacked a woman at a gas station in Milwaukee.
 
The carjacking happened at approximately 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Citgo on 20th Street and Capitol Drive.
 
Milwaukee police said the suspects pulled up in a car  and approached the 18-year-old victim. The suspects -- ranging in age from 14 to 21 -- proceeded to yell at her, shove her and then steal her car.
 
Both cars took off from the scene.
 
About three hours later, officers found both cars near Hopkins Street and Sheridan Avenue.
 
Milwaukee police said the officers began to pursue the vehicles. The drivers eventually stopped and the officers took all five into custody.
