Three juveniles, including a 13-year-old boy, were being held Monday by Baltimore City police on charges of robbery, carjacking and assaults.
Police said two boys, the 13-year-old and a 15-year-old, and a 14-year-old girl were detained at the Baltimore City Juvenile Booking and Intake Facility. They were charged as juveniles in connection with a series of crimes in November and on Dec. 1.
On Nov. 12, police said the youths assaulted and robbed a 67-year-old woman as she walked in the 200 block of Bank Street around 1:30 p.m. They then stole her car.
A few weeks later, at about 3:10 p.m. on Nov. 29, a 35-year-old woman told police the teens robbed her of her purse, car keys and cellphone as she walked in the 300 block of S. Chester Street. Two of the juveniles drove off in her car, while one teen ran from the scene.
And at 2:15 p.m. Monday, a man walking in the 2000 block of Gough Street was approached by three teens who assaulted and robbed him. Although one of the teens had a gun, the man said he was able to get away before any property was stolen.
Police were investigating the incidents.
