Authorities: Woodbridge teen helps ISIS recruit

WASHINGTON — A 17-year-old Northern Virginia high school student is charged with helping recruit for the Islamic State.

Federal officials say the teen successfully helped a man not much older than himself make his way to Syria to fight for ISIS, The Washington Post reports.

The Washington Post reports on Friday FBI agents raided the Woodbridge townhouse where the teen lives with his family.

The boy goes to Prince William County’s Osbourn Park High School.

For now the boy is charged as a juvenile, but federal prosecutors are looking to move the case to an adult court.
