Police have arrested two juveniles in a series of robberies and carjackings in the Remington and Charles Village areas.

After receiving reports of a rash of incidents in recent weeks and recovering a stolen car on Exeter Hall Avenue, the Regional Auto Theft Task Force began paying closer attention to the area, said Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman.

Task force members located two more stolen vehicles and arrested two juveniles, one of whom confessed to several of the crimes, Guglielmi said. He did not release their names.

Judith A. Kunst, president of the Greater Remington Improvement Association, praised police for giving updates at a recent community meeting.

"There was a lot of concern in the neighborhood — these were occurring at 6:30, 7 o'clock at night," she said.

Guglielmi said the investigation was continuing.
