Buffalo Teen, 15, arrested in Golden Valley gas station carjacking

A teenage boy is in custody in connection to the carjacking of teenage sisters Monday evening at a Twin Cities gas station.

According to Golden Valley police it happened at the Speedway on the 1900 block of Douglas Drive North at about 8:37 p.m. The 16-year-old sister told investigators she was filling her 2018 Lexus RX with gas, while her 14-year-old sister stayed inside the vehicle.

The girls say a boy, who police describe as a “15-year-old white male suspect from Buffalo, MN,” came up to the Lexus, showed the 14-year-old a gun and demanded the keys. He then drove off, leaving the sisters unharmed.

Bloomington police tracked down the Lexus about two hours later, which contained the suspect and three other teens. The 15-year-old was arrested, and is awaiting criminal charges.

Golden Valley police did not say if they believe the suspect has any connection to the string of carjacking’s in the city in the past month, including the armed theft of a golfer’s Audi A5 last week outside of Theodore Wirth Golf Club.
