HARRINGTON — Four juveniles were arrested last Friday following a reported robbery on Thorpe Street, Harrington Police spokesman Capt. Earl K. Brode said.

Police were told by an adult that a large group of juveniles assaulted him and his wallet was taken. The suspects then fled, police said.

The suspects were identified as a 14-, 16- and 17-year-old from Harrington and a 17-year-old Bridgeville youth. They were all located in Harrington, police said.

Charges included second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. The 17-year-old was also charged with theft under $1,500.

The suspects were arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 7 in Dover and released on unsecured bond pending a future court appearance in Kent County Family Court.
