A pair of teen boys are facing multiple charges in connection with a July carjacking and August stabbing within a two-kilometre area near Grantham Avenue in St. Catharines, Ont.

Niagara police believe one of the pair was the person who pointed a firearm at a driver and demanded they vacate their vehicle in a July incident on Welland Avenue near Bunting Road.

The accused fled in the car and was believed to have picked up a second teen in the process. The car was recovered not long after the incident.
