WORTHINGTON - Two unnamed male juveniles were taken into custody Saturday on multiple offenses following a short pursuit with law enforcement in a stolen vehicle.
According to a press release issued Monday morning by the Worthington Police Department, officers reported to an undisclosed Worthington business in response to a panic alarm received at 7:54 p.m. Saturday. According to regularly received incident reports, a robbery was reported around that same time Saturday at a business on the 1700 block of Oxford Street.
Two juvenile males fled from the business, but were stopped and arrested without resistance on Interstate 90 east of Worthington.
During the initial investigation, two CO2 (air) pistols and an undisclosed amount of cash were recovered. The vehicle the juveniles fled in was reported stolen in Windom.
According to a post on the Cottonwood County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, the juveniles’ arrest occurred within an hour of the vehicle being reported to the Windom Police Department.
The Nobles County Attorney’s Office could not confirm Tuesday whether charges had been filed against the juvenile suspects or whether or not they were at least 16 years of age or older, which - according to Minnesota State Statute - is generally the age requirement that subjects the court proceeding and records of a juvenile accused of a qualifying felony-level offense to public access and review.
