Police: 3 teens in custody for August home-invasion robbery

BREMERTON, Wash. -- Three suspects are in custody for the August home-invasion robbery that saw three teens break into a Bremerton home and attack a woman and her son with chair legs, according to the Bremerton Police Department.

According to police, the teens entered the home in the 100 block of Oak Street in the early hours of Aug. 12, confronted a 38-year-old woman and her 17-year-old son, and demanded to know where "the grow" was.

The victims later told officers there was an ounce of medical marijuana in the house.

According to police, the men beat the son with chair legs while forcing the mother to the floor and hitting her in the head. The men reportedly ran off with a computer and $300 after the son fought back.

Last Tuesday, a 17-year-old was arrested and confessed to participating in the robbery, according to police. A 14-year-old arrested Monday reportedly confessed to helping plan it. And, another 14-year-old in custody for a different incident has been identified as one of the robbers, according to police.

Detectives are still looking for a 19-year-old man they believe led the robbery.
