Prosecutors said two of the suspects were found and arrested on the 46th floor of a high rise that is under construction. They had reportedly climbed the caffolding to get there. Two others were found with their bicycles in the garage area.

Because the suspects were teens with no prior records, they were not arraigned, but instead a pre-trial diversion date was set. It is unclear if any of them have attorneys.
