WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (AP) - A woman has been arrested after a car was stolen with two young children inside and crashed into a house.
The woman fled the scene and was arrested several blocks away.
The children were not injured.
Police say the parents of the children went into a grocery store in Wheat Ridge and left their 3-year-old and 4-year-old in the car.
According to police, a woman stole the family's car while the children were inside and drove to Denver.
A police spokesperson tells KDVR-TV that the parents know the suspect, but the woman's name was not released.
