Four teenagers were arrested following a Saturday night robbery in the Depot District that culminated with a police chase and a traffic crash.

17-year-old Kenny Jimenez and three juveniles were arrested on charges of aggravated robbery, injury to a child, unauthorized use of a vehicle, evading arrest and organized crime.

LPD reports the teens in an SUV demanded money from three women walking in the 1700 block of Buddy Holly Avenue. One women said she was threatened at gunpoint.

"Just shock at first, like 'Is this really happening?'" Chelsey Betenbough told FOX 34. "And still right now, it feels like a dream, like I was just watching it happen. But, we stayed pretty calm and he stayed pretty calm. So we just handed over what we had and he left."

After a short police pursuit, the vehicle crashed in the 3700 block of Avenue P. Police found an 18-month-old child in the SUV who was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
