Two children, ages 12 & 11 part of a group of juvenile delinquents charged with a weekend crime spree in Houston.

Authorities in Texas arrested two children ages 12 and 11, as part of a group of juvenile delinquents who engaged in a series of crimes including several robberies, and carjackings in the Houston area.

According to KHOU, the group of young boys were implicated in more than two dozen attacks of senior citizens in the Westbury area.

The youngest suspects arrested are 11 and 12 years old.

Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap said in a statement Tuesday that a 14-year-old was arrested a day earlier.

Additionally, Heap said the investigation may result in additional arrests.

Moreover, authorities said the three children were arrested for their involvement in an attack Sept. 9 on a 76-year-old man who was out for an evening walk. He says the man was beaten with his walking cane by suspects who demanded money at gunpoint before running away.

The names of the underaged suspects were not released because of they’re juveniles.

Heap says the children may be connected to more than two-dozen crimes reported since May.
