Police say two teens are in Medical College of Georgia Hospital tonight facing multiple charges after they tricked a woman outside the Kroger grocery on 15th Street, stole her car, then wrecked it on Milledge Road, crashing it into a house when police came after them.

The boy, 14, is being treated for a gash to his face, and the girl, 16, suffered a broken leg, police said. The car also caught fire.

Investigator Cory Carlyle said the incident began about 8 p.m. when the woman saw two young people who appeared distressed outside the grocery. She said she offered them a ride home, and after taking them to an address on Dunn's Lane, they said their mother would like to thank her.

After leaving the car to approach the house, she said one of the teens got behind the wheel, while the other strangled her from behind with a lanyard from her sunglasses.

She got away, but they got into her car and drove off. Police, however, quickly caught up with them and chased them through town with speeds approaching 75 to 80 mph.

The driver lost control of the car, crashing it into a porch at a residence at 297 Milledge Road.

Police said the two juveniles are facing multiple traffic and robbery charges when they are released from the hospital.

No good deed goes unpunished.

No good deed goes unpunished. I have stopped helping people because you can't trust anyone these days and the safety of my daughter & myself trumps helping someone in need. It's unfortunate that the world has come to this. We should start holding the parents responsible for the behavior of their minors. I'll bet that would cut down on much of the juvenile crime.

I hear ya there tdp, I have

I hear ya there tdp, I have also stopped helping in most situations. I hate it my husband still does sometimes. These little punks need to be taught a long long lesson then working thier backs out when they get out of jail to pay back every penny and pain and suffering to the woman they victimized!!! I'm glad no other innocent people were hurt by thier ignorant actions on the road or in the home. As far as them getting hurt... oh well too bad, occupational hazzard.... dont be a criminal!!!!!! Then they should have to stand outside thier schools with signs saying what little [filtered word]'s they were that day. Humiliation works!!!

DONT WORRY ABOUT THEM. Juvenile Justice will slap them on the wrist and let them go. Poor little babies.

Does it matter if they were black or white? Why does race have to come into everything that is posted!

In this town, race is EVERYTHING. Doesn't everybody know that by now? The little brats are probably being raised by their grandmother or auntie.

Hey puddeecat, would that change what happened in any way at all? Remember that old saying you hear in church all the time...hate the sin, love the sinner?

The odds are the they are

The odds are the they are black, given that the vast numbers of shoppers of the 15th street store are black. Common sense. That doesn't mean they weren't white. It only means the odds are they were black.

Black or white, what does it

Black or white, what does it matter - these juveniles took advantage of a lady willing to help. Those two and any other juvenile delinquents should be sentenced to public flogging - start this new trend - who knows - it might just work - slap on the wrist has not - we know that much.
We are adapting to so many new laws we could use one that makes sense and stops crime (I hope!!)

I'm sure in no time they will have a nice police record just like Justice Elmore. His butt should have been off the street years ago.

In case you didn't understand

In case you didn't understand Braiding the Wheel with them, here is what Braiding the Wheel is: break their legs and arms then thread them (their whole body) through the spokes of a wagon wheel and take the wagon down a dirt road. On-lookers can spit on them and other things. They will eventually die from the pain.

You know, TRULYWORRIED, a

You know, TRULYWORRIED, a literal slap on the wrist, especially done repeatedly and publicly, just might be the very thing for these two fools. Slap them hard and for five full minutes with a thin birch switch, and I'll bet they turn into model citizens overnight. It's amazing how stupid our justice system has become, that something so simple and effective as publicly administered, non-maiming corporal punishment has been replaced by amazingly expensive, hugely ineffective, and even counterproductive methods of juvenile incarceration. For some segments of society, spending time in juvie is a badge of honor and a right of passage. NO teenager of any stripe would lightly risk being publicly humilitated.

brisco, that 10:34 comment

brisco, that 10:34 comment holds no ground. Hate the sin, love the sinner? Really? We all posses the ability to do harm to one another. If someone attacks me I won't love them for being who they are, I'll deal with them as a threat. Sin without action is just a thought. We all see cars we'd like to have, but we don't attempt to do what these kids did. It's not the "sin" here that's the problem, it's the two little twits that strangled this woman and stole her car. Having attempted murder and grand theft auto on their records at 14 and 16 means this is just the start of their criminal careers.

Oh no, this isn't the first

Oh no, this isn't the first thing they've done. They probably have been committing crimes for quite a while now. And they aren't done.

M&J, you missed the point (or

M&J, you missed the point (or maybe I didn't use the best metaphor). My point was that whoever the person was I responded to was focused on whether the two perps were black or white. That has nothing to do with what they did. I don't care if they were green, what they did was awful, and I hate it.

Ok anybody want to guess what

Ok anybody want to guess what race these two fine outstanding young adults are? I bet they make there momma proud so close to Mothers Day. You think?? Let me look into my crystal ball. Yes I see my tax dollars supporting them in Jail and Welfare. I see the young lady with babies from 5 men none are the same. I see the young man looking like Mr. Elmore

Oh please - "ionlyknow"

Oh please - "ionlyknow" let's not get too far out of bounds!
The public humiliation - that punishment with a birch switch is a good idea too - costs a lot less of taxpayers' money and they won't learn any new tricks in jail - they'll be too ashamed to show their faces. If not - then they are just plain helpless cases and need to be treated as hardened criminals.

No worries here. Obama is

No worries here. Obama is going to take care of these two and supply them everything they need in their lives from now on. Plus, when they are older they will be well qualified for Cabinet positions in the Obama administration. Yep, future Democrats for sure.

These two misguided youths

These two misguided youths are simply missunderstood. We have failed to properly educate them and provide them with everything they need from society. We expect them to follow the laws of the land even though they don't belive the laws apply to them so we need to be more understanding. They were probalby just going back to the store to buy the nice lady some flowers or something until the pesky police made them drive faster since when the police turned on their blue lights it certainly scared them into what they did. If your really think about it, the police are totally at fault because they persued them, made them wreck and should be responsible for the injuries caused to these two poor kids as well as the ladies vehicle. Why wont the police just stop picking on misguided youth and let them have a little fun. What is so sad is that some would read this, not understand the sarcasm and actually agree with the point of view. These two are headed down a path to destruction and have already committed a violent act against a person. They need close supervision, proper education, etc. or they will be living the bad life in jail for some time.

obviously black or white does

obviously black or white does matter! otherwise it wouldn't be asked on every standardized form we fill out...it wouldn't be kept as a statistic...race is everywhere. just because he asked about race doesn't make him a racist!

This HAS to be a brother and

This HAS to be a brother and sister team. What self-respecting 16 year old girl would be teamed up with a 14 year old boy? And why would they do what they did? Fear of retribution does not exist. Oh how things have changed since I was 16.

Multiple traffic and robbery

Multiple traffic and robbery charges...what about attempting to strangle the woman with a lanyard? They planned this crime out, it obviously wasn't just a joyride gone bad....the kids deserve to be locked up for a LONG time.
