NBC Universal, Inc.

Two people are in custody after leading police on a pursuit in the San Fernando Valley Saturday night.

LAPD was chasing a black Jeep through the freeways in the Los Angeles area and then reaching the San Fernando Valley.

While on the southbound 5 freeway, a driver and a passenger abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene.

They headed towards the dark foothills, jumping over barriers and calmly walking across the highway.

The pair, who appeared to be a man and a woman, made their way to the dark hills where they hid from police.

LAPD searched the area for about 30 minutes, trying not to lose sight of them by using the night sun from their helicopter.

The two were finally located and taken into custody.
