Woman who spots her stolen car calls 911, follows it

Police arrested two people Wednesday afternoon after a woman called 911 at about 11:30 a.m. to report she was following her stolen car, Wichita police Officer Charley Davidson said.

The woman followed the car until its driver parked near Ninth and Pershing. Officers arrived and one person ran; another person was arrested near Ninth and Oliver.

Officers originally called on the SWAT team to help, but they were not needed, Davidson said.

Residents in the area were asked to stay inside their houses for a short period of time, but Davidson said there is no longer a public safety issue.

No injuries to either of the men or the woman were reported. One K-9 officer using his dog tripped and fell, and was treated on scene, Davidson said.
