Teens Arrested for Attempted Carjacking In Green Lake

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee December 4, 2009

Police are requesting that robbery and weapons charges be filed against two teens who were arrested for an attempted carjacking near Green Lake last month.


On November 20th, a man told police he was getting out of his car at 70th Ave N and N Linden Street when two teens wearing hooded sweatshirts and bandannas over their faces approached him and demanded his car keys. One of them was armed with a knife, the report says.


The man tried to flag down passing motorists for help, the report says,"but they drove off."


The teens attacked the  man, punching him in the face at least once.


A motorist finally stopped to help, scaring off the teens, who fled towards Aurora.


The man called 911 and members of the North Precinct Anti-Crime Team were dispatched to investigate. ACT officers spotted two teens near N 70th and Winona Avenue. "Despite the cold, windy, and wet weather," the report says, the teens were only wearing t-shirts. Officers contacted the boys and, during a search, found a steak knife in one boy's pants, and an 8" butcher knife in one of the teen's backpacks. Police also recovered green, purple, and white bandannas, a black balaclava, and hooded sweatshirts.


The victim of the robbery was able to identify the teens, and SPD is now requesting that the teens be charged with robbery and possession of a dangerous weapon.
