According to deputies, Wilkens was one of four suspects, all 17 years old, who robbed two teens in Piney Green on Feb. 18.
The victims, both 15 years old, were on their way home from a convenience store, located across from White Oak High School, when the four robbers jumped them, deputies said. The thieves used knives and a gun to assault and rob the two victims, according to investigators.
