The Tulare County Sheriff's Department says the four boys, ages 13 to 17, attacked a woman near Exeter. They say the woman was assaulted, robbed and kidnapped at gunpoint.
The suspects have been identified as 13 year olds, Logan Heath and Ronald Jones. Wyatt Valle, 14, and Pete Spray, 17, confronted a woman outside her Exeter job.
Lt. Kevin Cotton said, "As to what their motive was to commit these crimes, we really won't know until we catch up with these juveniles and attempt to question them."
Lt. Kevin Cotton says Sheriff Bill Wittman wants these pictures of the boys to be shown publicly, because they are dangerous. Investigators say the victim called 911 after the boys left in her car.
"Upon arrival there, deputies found a female adult victim who worked for a local area business," said Lt. Kevin Cotton. "She was delivering food product in the area when she was confronted by the juveniles."
The sheriff's department says the boys are armed with guns, and other weapons.
Lt. Kevin Cotton added, "There were threats of violence, the particulars, of course, I can't get into too much."
Detectives say the teens sped off in her 2005 red Mazda hatchback, with license plate 6BEE350.
Sheriff's officials say another reason they want to find the boys, one of them regularly takes epilepsy medication.
If you've seen them, you're asked to call 911.
