    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Two more teens, just 13 and 14 years old, have been arrested in connection with the investigation into a beating and robbery of a 72-year-old woman.

    Police said the teens were in the woman's stolen car.
           
    Three other people, including a 14-year-old, have been charged in the crime.

    Police said the elderly woman was robbed and beaten inside her own home on Westcliff Drive Sunday.

    Charlotte Mecklenburg police detectives arrested two boys -- 13 and 14 -- around 10 a.m. Tuesday, who they said were riding in the victim's stolen car that was taken Sunday after the robbery.

    So far, police have not said if one of the teens was actually driving the car or if anyone else was inside the vehicle. But they do say they were involved in a hit-and-run Tuesday morning in the victim's stolen car on Carlyle Drive. 

    The suspects were later nabbed by authorities on Crestmere Street after police said the teens attempted to run away from the scene. 

    On Monday night, police arrested Sylessa Ford, 17, and Myron Bullock, 18, on robbery, kidnapping and attempted murder charges in the case.

    Police said they tied up and beat the woman and stole her money, phone and car.

    A 14-year-old boy was also arrested for his involvement in the crimes, according to CMPD.

    Police said they don't intend to make any more arrests in this case.

    Police said the teens arrested Tuesday were not involved in Sunday’s robbery.
