Delaware State Police have taken five suspects into custody after they were found inside the stolen vehicle of U.S. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, who was the victim of an armed carjacking in South Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon, officials said.
Scanlon’s blue Acura MDX was located by state police and the FBI around 9 p.m. Wednesday at 2800 Fashion Center Boulevard in Newark, near the Christiana Mall.
Authorities in Delaware charged the four juveniles on Thursday. Brown will eventually be charged by federal officials.
All the juveniles who are 13, 14, 15 and 16 are facing a charge of receiving stolen property over $1,500.
Additionally, one 15-year-old boy was charged with resisting arrest and two counts of criminal mischief.
Scanlon, a Democrat who represents Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional district, was held up in broad daylight by two armed men who approached her and an aide along the 1900 block of Pattison Avenue in the area around 2:45p.m.
