SAN ANTONIO – Seguin police said all five suspects wanted in connection with the assault and carjacking of a 15-year-old boy in a Walmart parking lot have been arrested.
The suspects, whose ages ranged from 16 to 19, had been wanted since the incident that took place at 8:45 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 5, outside the store in the 500 block of South State Highway 123 Bypass.
The suspects went up to the 15-year-old’s Dodge Charger and forced him and his 16-year-old female passenger out of the car, police said.
They assaulted the 15-year-old boy and took off in his vehicle. He was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
Seguin police said the Dodge Charger was located in the Port Arthur area, near Beaumont.

The named men were apprehended last week and charged with aggravated robbery.
The 16-year-old boy was the last to be arrested, police said Monday. He is detained at Jefferson County Juvenile Detention Center and his charges are unknown.
The case remains under investigation.
