Teens face charges in North Braddock home invasion
Two teenagers face multiple criminal charges in connection with a home invasion over the weekend in North Braddock, police said Tuesday.
Investigators are trying to determine if the teens, ages 15 and 16, are responsible for a pair of similar incidents that occurred in the borough, said Sgt. Tom Ninehouser.
Police say three suspects broke into the back door of a home on Ann Street around 1:45 a.m. Saturday. The homeowners -- a couple in their late 60s and early 70s -- heard the noise, locked themselves in a bedroom and called police, Ninehouser said. The couple was not hurt.
The teens then stole the couple's 2007 Honda, but only got about a block away before they were spotted by a North Braddock patrol officer. After a brief pursuit, the suspects ran from the car.
Two of the three teens were arrested and taken to the Shuman Juvenile Detention Center in East Liberty, Ninehouser said. The third suspect still is being sought.
Charges include burglary, reckless endangerment, theft and resisting arrest.
