BALTIMORE (Meredith) -- Three 14-year-old boys and one 12-year-old boy have been charged with raping a 19-year-old woman at gunpoint in Baltimore, according to Baltimore police.
The three 14-year-olds are being charged as adults. The 12-year-old is being charged as a juvenile.
According to WMAR, police said the 19-year-old woman had gotten off a public transit bus Feb. 6 and was walking home when the four boys ambushed her, forced her into a backyard at gunpoint and raped her. Police said only one of the suspects had a gun.
Police told WMAR that neighbors heard a ruckus outside and came to the rescue, interrupting the assault. The four boys then ran off, police said.
Two of the suspects were caught on public transportation surveillance cameras, and police released the photos to the public asking for tips. According to WJZ, police with Baltimore City Schools recognized the suspects and contacted Baltimore police. The other two suspects were identified soon after, according to WJZ.
Police said the victim positively identified the suspects.
On Thursday, police arrested 14-year-old Wilmer Ramos, 14-year-old Phillip Worrell and 14-year-old Nile Campbell. The 12-year-old was also arrested, but his name was not released since he is being charged as a juvenile.
