A crime spree in Washington, D.C. ended Friday after police arrested a teen suspected in committing nearly a dozen crimes over roughly three weeks.

The 13-year-old's crime spree dates back to March 27th, when he allegedly was involved in theft, armed robbery and unarmed carjacking.

Over a week later, he was accused of another armed robbery, in which he allegedly hit a woman in the back of the head with a hammer multiple times, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Due to his age, his identity has not been disclosed.
