The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has filed new charges against the three teens accused of throwing bricks onto I-95 from an overpass.

Bobby Stone, the 17-year-old driver, 17-year-old Javier Prieto, Jr. and 18-year-old Alex Alvarado are accused of throwing bricks and rocks over the Baggett Road I-95 overpass Monday, and narrowly missing several drivers and passengers as they caused damage to the cars.

The sheriff's office said Saturday that two additional victims have come forward to report their vehicles had been damaged. A truck driver from Virginia said a brick went through the roof of his truck at about 10 p.m. the night before the incidents in question. He said his truck now has a hole in the roof.

A second truck driver out of Clayton said his truck was hit that same night. He called the Bill Patterson Trucking office around 9:30 p.m. and said his truck had been hit by something thrown from a bridge at MM 65.

Stone, Prieto, and Alvarado were arrested Feb. 1. They were originally charged with five counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and five counts of damage to property. The were being held at the Cumberland County jail on a $250,000 secured bond.

Due to the additional victims in this case, detectives charged the teens with two more counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and damage to property. The bond for the teens was raised to $350,000 secured.

Stone, Prieto and Alvarado will have first appearance on the new charges on Feb. 8, 2016.
