Wichita Falls Police are investigating a hit and run involving teens that sent one burglary suspect to the hospital.

Police got a call of someone breaking into a vehicle Sunday just after 3:00 p.m. on 9th St and Wenonah. Officers told us a 45-year-old witnessed three teens break into his truck. He later got in his truck and followed the teens in their Ford Focus. The suspect driver Shakalya Stevenson, 19, turned onto a dead end on Hiawatha where the victim blocked them.

Police said Stevenson then turned around and rammed her car into the truck. One of the male passengers who is 16 years old tried to run away but his leg was injured and he had to sit down in a nearby yard. The suspect vehicle left without him. The juvenile was later sent to United Regional by ambulance and then arrested.

The Ford Focus was found at the intersection of Arrowhead and Windmill Lake streets and was impounded. Police later arrested the female driver and 18-year-old male suspect Stephen Marcel Smith who were found walking in the area.

All three were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and burglary of a vehicle. The driver Shakalya Stevenson was also charged with aggravated assault.
