Pittsburgh police chased down a stolen car in Perry South whose driver struck a pedestrian, flipped the car and hid inside a house before he was taken into custody on Sunday evening, officials said.

Zone 1 police said the car was stolen shortly after 6 p.m., and the driver fled outbound on Perrysville Avenue. Near the intersection with Federal Avenue, the car struck a pedestrian and flipped onto its side. Two people fled the car, and the driver ran into a nearby house to barricade himself inside, police said.

Officers took the driver into custody inside the house. The pedestrian did not appear to be seriously injured. Police are not identifying the driver because he is a minor.
