15-Year-Old, 13-Year-Old Charged In Carjacking

A 15-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl have been charged after a carjacking on Brick Church Pike.

The crime happened in the 5400 block at the Shell gas station.

Police said the 37-year-old male victim went to the gas station with his 14-year-old daughter in a 2017 Ford F-150.

They went inside, and the keys were left in the ignition. His daughter reportedly looked outside and saw the 13-year-old getting into the her dad’s truck.

She then reportedly watched the 15-year-old boy get out of a nearby white SUV and head toward the truck.

The father and daughter went outside and confronted the boy. When asked what he was doing, the 15-year-old allegedly reached for his waistband and said, “I’m gonna bust you.”

The victims said they believed he had a gun. They backed away out of the fear of being shot. The two teenage suspects then left in the truck.

The Juvenile Crime Task Force captured the two teens after a foot chase near Revels Drive and Highland Trace Drive.

When officers spotted the two walking, the teens started running but were caught after the brief chase.

The key to the truck was reportedly found in the 13-year-old girl’s pocket.

Both refused to answer questions from detectives. They have been charged at juvenile detention with aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and evading arrest.
