APTOS -- (KRON) -- A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in a hammer attack of three other teen boys as they slept in an Aptos garage early Monday morning, sheriff's deputies said.
Detectives arrested the boy at around 10:30 am. in Watsonville.
He was booked into juvenile hall for assault with a deadly weapon and robbery.
The victim who was rushed to the hospital is now in stable condition, but has a long road to recovery, sheriff's deputies said.
“This assault was beyond stupid and these suspects are fortunate nobody is dead as a result of this attack. Our deputies are going to find every one of the suspects, they should turn themselves in now,” Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart said.
