Five teens have been charged for allegedly assaulting two children for their Halloween candy in Dale City, Va.

Instead of going door to door themselves, Prince William County police say the teens decided to steal candy from two younger boys last Monday. When the kids refused to give over their candy, the five teens proceeded to beat up the two youngsters.

Police say one of the teens implied he had a gun during the alleged assault. Four of those charged are 16 and 17 years old. As juveniles, the police are withholding their names. The fifth alleged attacker is 19-year-old Andre Diggs who is being held without bond.

The five are charged for assault by mob and robbery.
