Evidence the 16-year-old was involved in the Sunday carjacking was also found and he was subsequently arrested. The teen was charged with strangulation, robbery, burglary, criminal attempt to commit larceny of vehicle, and assault. The teen was later charged with home invasion, police said Tuesday afternoon.

The teen was also arrested and faces larceny charges in connection to the theft of the BMW stolen out of Westport along with a charge of home invasion.

Police are working to identify additional suspects involved in the carjackings.

It is believed that the Aston Martin’s owner was targeted and followed home before the carjacking.
