ATLANTIC CITY — A 13-year-old city boy was arrested with a rifle Tuesday after fleeing from officers investigating a stolen car, police said Tuesday.
At 2:29 a.m., Officers Ivaylo Ivanov and Danish Mohammad located a vehicle that had been reported stolen from Northfield in the 600 block of Absecon Boulevard, Sgt. Kevin Fair said in a news release.
As the officers waited for the tow truck, they parked their vehicle away from the car to see whether someone would return, Fair said.
Two males approached the stolen car and, upon seeing the officers, turned and began to walk away, Fair said. As the officers drove toward the males, they began to run.
