When she refused, the juveniles brandished handguns and took her cell phone, her purse and the car.
"They used guns to intimidate this lady," Sgt. Coleman said. "She was parked in front of her own house, minding her own business."
About 3 p.m., the detective, who had been driving around looking for the stolen car, saw it and the juveniles on Burwood Avenue. They ran. He gave chase and caught the one, who was being interviewed late Tuesday afternoon by the police department's Violent Offenders Unit, Coleman said.
The woman was not injured, he said, but she was frightened.
Sgt. Coleman cautioned people to be aware of their surroundings and to be vigilant at all times.
