PALMDALE -Two 14-year-old boys were arrested Wednesday for allegedly smashing the front window at a local Target and entering the store, authorities said.
The incident took place around 2:46 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 16, at the store located at 39440 10th Street West in Palmdale, according to Lieutenant Brian Dunn of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.
“Palmdale Station received a 911 call that a front window of the Palmdale Target store had been smashed by two subjects. Deputies responded and were on scene almost immediately,” Dunn stated in a news release.
“The first deputy on scene was advised the two subjects had entered through the smashed window and started to run down a store aisle when they happened to run into some of the night shift employees inside the store. The subjects turned and ran out the same window they smashed,” Dunn stated.
Authorities broadcast the descriptions of the subjects, and two local teenagers who matched the descriptions were detained by deputies nearby, according to Dunn.
The suspects, both 14 years old, were identified by witnesses as the two who committed the crime, Dunn said.
Both subjects were detained on suspicion of commercial burglary.
