The charges include break and enter, theft under $5,000, theft of a motor vehicle, assault of a peace officer, assault with a weapon and resisting arrest.

The youth, who cannot be named because of his age, was arrested near the Lewes River Bridge north of Marsh Lake, after abandoning a vehicle and fleeing on foot.

Police say they are still investigating matters related to the youth, and additional charges are pending.
