A 16-year-old boy faces charges because he led police on a chase early Tuesday from the Pittsburgh Mills complex, Frazer police said.

The boy, of the Homewood section of Pittsburgh, and a 14-year-old Arnold girl were sitting in a vehicle in a parking lot just after 3 a.m. when a Frazer officer and a Springdale Borough officer approached the Hyundai, reported stolen Jan. 1 in Pittsburgh; the boy allegedly drove away, causing one officer to jump out of the way, Frazer police Chief Terry Kuhns said.

Officers followed the vehicle southbound on Route 28, to the Harmar exit, and it turned onto Route 910 and later drove into a fence, police said. The boy was taken into custody and turned over to juvenile authorities, and the girl was released to family, Kuhns said.

The boy is charged as a juvenile with attempted aggravated assault on an officer, reckless endangerment and receiving stolen property, Kuhns said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
