"We literally caught him with his pants down," Lt. Jack West of Covington police said.
Suspected of robbing a man at gunpoint and stealing another man's car after beating him with a brick, the teenager had run away from police several times in recent weeks, West said.
An officer spotted the teen standing on a street corner Monday, called for two backup officers, then tried to make an arrest.
"They all converged on him from different directions," West said. "He started to run, but his low-riding pants fell down and he stumbled to his knees."
The suspect, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was booked on warrants for armed robbery, carjacking, two counts of aggravated battery and being a child in need of supervision.
