Three 16-year-old boys were charged Tuesday for allegedly grabbing a 14-year-old jogger and putting her into the back of their pickup.

The three Santa Clara teens each face one count of second-degree felony kidnapping in 5th District Juvenile Court.

The teens are accused of donning rubber clown masks on April 30 and abducting the girl as she was jogging down a Santa Clara street.

The girl, who was unrestrained in the back of the locked covered pickup, managed to escape and remembered enough information about the alleged incident that police were able to locate the vehicle and the boys.

The Salt Lake Tribune does not typically identify juveniles charged with crimes.
