Three teenagers are accused of blocking her Chevrolet Cobalt at the intersection. She told Lee County deputies that she was told to get out of her car. She said they grabbed the back of her head and put the barrel of a gun to her forehead.

According to investigators, the driver's side of the car was open when the three approached the car.

Deputies were able to find the three males after the woman told them the direction the three fled. The three males crashed the vehicle into a stop sign while a deputy was chasing them.

They fled but were arrested with the use of a canine unit a short time later as they hid in a wooded area.

According to the sheriff's office, one of the suspects was treated at Lehigh Regional Medical Center after he had been bitten during the apprehension.

The three teens have been charged with carjacking with a firearm and resisting arrest. Investigators said Campbell was also charged with fleeing to elude an officer.

He was the driver of the stolen car, investigators said.
