GOODYEAR, Ariz. - A man and a woman are in custody after deputies say they tried to break into a home and stole a Good Samaritan's car Saturday.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office responded to a home near Citrus Road and Roosevelt Street around 3:30 p.m. for a possible attempted burglary.
The alleged victim told Goodyear police and MCSO deputies the suspects ran through the desert toward Interstate 10 and Perryville. The suspects were later seen running onto the interstate east of the Perryville exit.
Officers then saw them enter a car on westbound Interstate 10, leaving the driver on the side of the road.
According to the sheriff's office, the suspects took the vehicle without permission as the driver got out to check on them.
Deputies and Goodyear officers found the stolen car crashed into an Arizona state sign on Interstate 10 and the Watson off-ramp.
The suspects had fled the scene and were found in the desert area northwest of the crash, deputies said.
The man and the woman were taken into custody without incident. They had minor cuts from the crash and were treated on scene by Buckeye Valley Fire.
No officers, deputies or victims were injured.
