Police are appealing for information after a car in Kendal hit a teenage boy and allegedly drove off when officers approached.
The Grey Vauxhall Grandland left the Aynam Road area before heading towards Barrow at around 1am on the morning of 13 January.
Police stopped chasing the vehicle over safety concerns for other road users but later stopped a taxi with the occupants of the Vauxhall.
A 18 and 20-year-old man from Lancashire and a 29-year-old man from Millom were arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery, driving a motor vehicle dangerously, falling to stop and driving while unfit thought drugs.
They remain in police custody.
The teenage boy involved in the incident was unhurt.
Anyone with any information or who might have witnessed the vehicle should contact police on 101.
