Five teenage boys were charged Monday morning after police caught them with a car that was stolen the day before in a West Humboldt Park neighborhood carjacking on the West Side.

Two men, ages 19 and 18, were parking their 2015 black Honda Civic about 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the 4700 block of West Augusta when a group of three armed males demanded the car, according to Chicago police. The victims complied and the suspects drove away.

No injuries were reported in the carjacking.

Five teenage boys were spotted running away from the stolen Honda about 12:40 a.m. Monday in the 7800 block of South Paxton in the South Shore neighborhood, police said. The three 15-year-olds and two 14-year-olds were taken into custody.

All five of them were charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to a vehicle, according to police. They were expected to appear in juvenile court on Monday.
