Four Teenagers are charged with sexual assault

In Powderhorn Park, four teenage boys were charged with sexually assaulting three women last week.

According to KARE 11 the boys were charged in juvenile court and according to Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, all of them may still be certified to be tried as adults.

"In this case because of the seriousness of the crimes, we will be seeking to certify all four of the juveniles," Freeman told Jana Shortal of KARE 11.

Shortal also said that though one of the suspect's names had previously been released and his age was confirmed as 16 years old, he may actually be 15 years old.

"That was an error. It doesn't matter who made the error but we cannot put the genie back in the bottle," Freeman told KARE 11.

One of the other boys in the case is 14 years old and the other two are 15 years old.
