Police say the suspects fled from the store in a van when officers arrived shortly after midnight. Officers gave chase and eventually stopped the vehicle, arresting the driver without incident and an adult passenger after a brief struggle.

The 28-year-old Mitchell woman driving the van and the 34-year-old Sioux Falls man who was a passenger in the front seat were arrested on charges ranging from aggravated eluding to child cruelty.

Police say the children were not hurt but a 58-year-old back-seat passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries.
