    Please make the expression express peoperly in grammar

    Crimes by adolescent erupt, central government urgent to seek countermeasure

    I don't know how to express the title above properly. For example:

    (1) "Adolescent" here actually means "11 -- 25-year-old people", but I could find the proper word.

    (2) "Erupt" means ' the frequency of happening crimes is high".

    (1) a teenager (i.e., from 13 to 19 years of age)
    (2) bursts forth; suddenly intensifies

    (1) See AHD: Teenager A person between the ages of 13 and 19; an adolescent.

    (2) Burst forth = erupt

    ===============================
    So I felt nothing has been edited by you.

    What I wanted to express is:

    the frequency of happening crimes by teenagers has been high since 2002, central government urgent to seek countermeasure

    Please make it terse as a title of an article.
