Police in northwestern Pennsylvania said six boys ranging from 12 to 15 years old faced charges after they ganged up on a woman, punched her in the face, then stole her wallet.
Police said the boys were located shortly after the incident, which occurred about 6 p.m. Sunday in Erie.
Police said charges were pending against the boys, but it wasn't clear whether any might be charged as adults or whether all would face their accuser in Erie County Juvenile Court.
