UPDATE: Two female juveniles suspected of hijacking a car on Avenue of the Cities in Moline have turned themselves in, according to a press release from the Moline Police Department.

According to the release, the 16-year-old juvenile from Silvis turned herself in just hours after police released photos of the suspects. Not long after, the 17-year-old from Moline also turned herself in.

"Both suspects were interviewed and processed by Rock Island County Juvenile Court Services and detained at Mary Davis Detention Center in Galesburg on charges of Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking," the release states.

The "Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking" happened at a convenience store in the 2700 Block of Avenue of the Cities, just east of I-74.

Just before 10:00 p.m. a woman went into the store, and left her blue Kia Soul running while her grandma sat in the passenger seat.
