MINNEAPOLIS --  Four teenage boys were charged Tuesday in juvenile court in connection to the sexual assaults of three women last week in the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Tuesday all of them remained in custody and he would seek to get them all certified to be tried as adults.

"In this case because of the seriousness of the crimes, we will be seeking to certify all four of the juveniles," Freeman said.

One of those teens was in court today facing such a certification but a mistake made by Freeman's office left the young man's age in question.

Freeman's office had already named the boy and said he was 16-years-old, but in court Tuesday, other information came forward suggesting he was 15-years-old.

"That was an error.  It doesn't matter who made the error but we cannot put the genie back in the bottle," Freeman said.

That teen will have a hearing in juvenile court soon to determine his actual age.
