Three teens arrested in Hamilton area crime spree

Three teens have been arrested in what Hamilton police are calling a five day crime spree.

It all started last Thursday  when a woman in her 80's was carjacked in the lot of Meadowlands Mall, was forced to drive around the city, and go to a bank machine to withdraw cash by a young man armed with a gun.

On Monday, a woman in her 70s was getting into her car at the same mall when a young man jumped into the back seat.

She quickly got out of the car and screamed for help, bystanders came to her aid and a young man ran away.

Later in the afternoon, a woman in her 80's got into her car at Limeridge Mall, to find a suspect hiding in the backseat.

He told her he had a gun, and robbed her of cash.

That same night, a 12 year old boy was reportedly robbed at gunpoint on Cranbrook Drive, a half hour later, around 8:30, a woman walking home from Mohawk College was also robbed at gunpoint.

A 15 year old and 16 year old from Hamilton are both facing a number of charges along with an 18 year old Toronto man
