Two suspects were arrested Saturday night after leading police on a chase in a stolen car, then ditching the vehicle before being captured in a foot pursuit.

Authorities tell ABC15, Phoenix police and Department of Public Safety troopers worked together to capture the man and woman in west Phoenix.

The male passenger bailed out of the car near 34th and Encanto Boulevards and fled on foot. Troopers captured and arrested him a short time later.

The woman kept driving before she jumped out of the car and ran away. Officers were able to catch up with her and take her into custody.

Authorities say they are both facing numerous felony charges.
