WORTHINGTON - Two unnamed male juveniles were scheduled to appear Monday in Nobles County District Court on more than a half-dozen charges related to an alleged recent armed burglary of a Worthington business and eluding law enforcement in a stolen vehicle, court documents indicate.

According to the court docket, each juvenile faces five felony-level charges, including: first-degree aggravated robbery, two counts of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, terroristic threats and receiving stolen property. They were each additionally charged with two counts of theft, one charged as a gross misdemeanor and the other a misdemeanor.
One juvenile was charged with felony fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle while the other was charged with tampering with a motor vehicle - ride in/on without owner permission, a misdemeanor.
Because of the juveniles’ continued confidentiality, it is probable that they are younger than 16 years old, as Minnesota State Statute usually calls for the court proceeding and records be made public in juvenile cases where the defendant is 16 years old and older and charged with felony-level offenses.
According to earlier reports from the Worthington Police Department, two juveniles allegedly fled the scene of a business Oct. 13 in the 1700 block of Oxford Street after law enforcement responded to a panic alarm initiated by an employee.
