WINCHESTER, Va. (WHSV) -- Winchester Police arrested two men early Thursday morning following a pursuit.

Randolph Christopher Largent, 25, of Romney, West Virginia and Robert Wayne Boyer, 23, of Winchester, were charged with grand larceny.

At about 2:30 a.m., an officer attempted to pull a car over in the area of Whitlock Avenue and Braddock Street after the driver, Largent, ran two stop signs.

When the officer activated his emergency lights, the car continued traveling down Braddock Street, making turns onto a number of streets in the downtown area.

In the first block of Southwerk Street, the vehicle hit a parked car, which then hit another car.

Largent then got out of the car and attempted to run from police, but was arrested.

The 1995 Toyota Corolla the two were using was reported stolen.

Largent is also charged with felony eluding police, hit and run, driving without a license, and obstruction of justice.

Largent and Boyer were both taken to Winchester Medical Center with minor injuries and released. They were then taken to the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.

Speeds during the pursuit did not exceed 40 mph.

Charges are pending against both men out of Frederick County for stolen property that was found in the vehicle.
