The incident occurred at 2:28 a.m. in the Mountain View Homes on the 300 block of West Mount Diablo Avenue. A caller reported that the minors were looking into vehicles in the parking lot and that they were possibly inside of a vehicle.
When police responded, the pair ran westbound on Mount Diablo Avenue, ran north and cut through backyards to Fourth Street and then over a fence.
A police K-9 unit stopped the boys near a sound wall across from In Shape Health Club on the 100 block of North Tracy Boulevard.
At least one boy was reportedly taken to the emergency room at San Joaquin County Hospital with undisclosed injuries.
Police also found a red Honda Civic in at the Mountain View parking lot that the boys reportedly arrived in and had it towed away. Names and ages of the two boys, and any charges filed in the case, are not available because they are under 18.
