A 16-year-old girl faces felony charges after she and two other people allegedly carjacked a ride-share driver in March in Roseland and led police on a chase into Indiana.

The three robbed a 44-year-old man at gunpoint on March 6 in the 300 block of East 95th Street and then took off in his car, police said. Illinois State Police followed the vehicle into Indiana where it crashed, police said.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested last month and charged with one felony count of aggravated vehicular highjacking in the incident.

The girl also robbed and attempted to carjack a 21-year-old woman the same day in the 2000 block of West Randolph Street, police said.

She faces two felony counts of armed robbery and one felony count each of vehicular hijacking, attempted vehicular hijacking and fleeing and eluding, police said.
