Two 13-year-olds and a 16-year-old are facing assault and weapons charges after police say the trio stole a car in Wilmington in late November. 

Police were called to the 1500 block of West 8th Street shortly after 9 p.m. on Nov. 20 for reports of a carjacking. Officers reportedly found the stolen vehicle a few blocks from where the alleged theft occurred. 

Three teens were taken into custody and charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm, second-degree assault, and related offenses.
