2 arrested following vehicle pursuit

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Two people were arrested following a vehicle pursuit Monday afternoon.

A South Bend officer attempted a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle at approximately 4:30 p.m. near Wilber Street and Lincolnway West.

Police say the vehicle refused to stop which led the officer to pursue.

The pursuit ended a short time later at the intersection of William Street and Lincolnway West following a crash.

Three occupants fled the vehicle but thanks to the assistance of a few good samaritans, officers were able to detain the subjects.

All three occupants were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

There were no other reported injuries.

Antonio Flores, 25, and Shonta Henderson, 20, were taken into custody.

The South Bend Police Department would like to thank the community for their assistance in this investigation.
