Three men wanted in connection with a home burglary led police on a high-speed pursuit in rush hour traffic with a child in their car.
They then bailed from the car and tried to flee by jumping from roof to roof in South Los Angeles Monday.
Authorities began chasing a red Chevrolet Impala after a report of a burglary in Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.
The driver led law enforcement officers at high speeds on the westbound 60 Freeway before exiting in the Boyle Heights area, then weaving his way through traffic into South LA.
The men pulled into a driveway, then fled down a street and into backyards. One of them climbed onto the roof of a home, then jumped to another, before being arrested.
Three men were taken into custody. A 9-year-old boy was found inside the vehicle following the pursuit, officials said.
