Teen Crime Spree Over?

Three teenagers arrested last week in connection with a street robbery are being investigated in a spate of other holdups on streets in Northwest Washington, authorities said. The youths, ages 14, 15 and 16, were charged as juveniles with robbing a man last Tuesday in the 1400 block of Ogden Street NW. Police said the youths assaulted the man and stole cash before running away. About 30 similar robberies have been reported to police since the beginning of summer in the Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods, authorities said. Police said one of the arrested youths told investigators that he committed at least 20 robberies. The youths, who were arrested Friday, had addresses in Maryland and the District."WP
