Three teens knocked another young person unconscious and then rifled his pocket for his cell phone in Elk Grove on Wednesday evening, police said.
The three suspected of jumping the 14 year old and knocking him out were later arrested and the cell phone recovered by Elk Grove police. The boys suspected in the robbery and assault, two 15 years old and a 13 year old, were taken to juvenile hall.
Elk Grove police officer Christopher Trim said that the attack occurred about 9 p.m. Wednesday near Bartholomew Sports Park. The victim was with friends when they saw what appeared to be at least three teens fighting.
Once they approached the trio, the victim and friends discovered that they were just “fake fighting” or horsing around. The victim and friends started to leave when the trio allegedly kicked and punched the 14 year old, rendering him unconscious.
The victim’s cell phone was removed from his pocket. Through investigation, officers found the three suspects and the cell phone in an apartment in the 9900 block of Bruceville Road. The teens were arrested.
A relative sought medical treatment for the injured teen, police said.
