Four young boys, all between the ages of 14 and 12 are charged with kidnapping and raping a 13 year old girl in New Castle County, Delaware.

Kabarshenay Ellis-Pinkney, 14, Louis Miller and Joseph James-Carter, both 13, and Ja'den Glover, 12 were all charged with first-degree rape and kidnapping charges. Because they are all juveniles, all four may be out of prison by their 18th birthday.

According to Delaware police,  the four dragged a 13 year old girl into a home on December 11 and forcibly raped her.

After the assault, Louis and Joseph allegedly threatened the victim with a weapon - warning her not to tell anyone what happened.

Police said a hearing would be held later to determine whether the suspects should be prosecuted as adults.

CNN does not generally identify minors who are arrested or charged with crimes.

The four are charged with various offenses including felony rape, kidnapping and unlawful sexual contact, police said.

Louis is also charged with one count of felony possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, one count of felony aggravated menacing, one count of misdemeanor terroristic threatening, one count of misdemeanor theft under $1,500, and one count of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.

The boys may serve less than 5 years for the rape, under Delaware law. Because all 5 are "juveniles', there is a good chance that all of the boys will be out of prison by the time they hit their 18th birthday.

Police said they are worried there may be more victims and ask anybody with information to contact police.
