A 14-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday in connection to a series of carjackings in Washington, D.C., that started more than a month ago. 

The suspect, who remains unidentified because of his age, is accused of seven carjackings in total from June 13 to July 18, police said. 

In each alleged incident, multiple suspects were involved, but it’s unclear if any of the other suspects have been arrested. The victim was in their car in each case at the time of the theft. Police say all of the allegedly stolen cars were eventually recovered. 

In the first carjacking, the suspects were allegedly unarmed. It took place on 1st Street when the victim was allegedly assaulted around 9 p.m. ET and their car was stolen.
