Madison police officers helped apprehend two teenagers after a stolen car crashed into electrical boxes on the city’s east side Wednesday night.

Police said the crash happened on South Baldwin Street near East Washington Avenue around 9:30 p.m.

According to the report, a Maple Bluff officer had attempted to pull over the car, which had been reported as stolen out of Waunakee.

The boys — one 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, both of Madison — fled but were found hiding inside a bathroom at a Williamson Street gas station, police said. Community members helped direct police to their location.

Waunakee police are handling the stolen car case and Maple Bluff police the hit-and-run, officials said.
