After investigating an attack that was recorded on video inside of a skate park, the authorities have located and arrested two of the three people that they believe were the main suspects involved in the allegedly heinous act.
On Sunday evening, people visiting the Moreno Valley Skate Park around 8:15 pm were reportedly spectators of a violent crime in action.
A video that was recorded by an onlooker, in addition to a surveillance camera in the skate park, depicted several people hanging out at the picnic tables in the new park when three men appeared to rush up to the area.
The people can be seen approaching a boy sitting atop one of the tables, and it appeared as if two of them were beating him with their fists. A voice from an unverified audio source can be heard telling the alleged attackers that they had targeted the wrong person.
Before the incident concluded it was reported that a total of three teenagers had allegedly been attacked while the visitors watched as the event took place.
When the Moreno Valley authorities became aware of the incident they watched the video captured by the city cameras and determined that the footage “clearly depicts three male juveniles being attacked without provocation.”
After combing through the recordings the police believed they had identified the three boys, reported as being between 14-15 years old, who were the alleged victims of the assault.
Three people were also pinpointed as the possible suspects who participated in carrying out the alleged attack.
35-year-old Robert Lee Aaron was detained for his purported involvement, and he is facing charges for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy, willful child endangerment, and contributing to the delinquency of minors.
Of the two other suspects, both age 17, one of them was taken into custody and he is being held in the Riverside County Juvenile Hall for allegations of felony assault, and conspiracy.
The second 17-year-old, as well as other people that they believe had a connection to the incident, are still being sought by the authorities.
