On the 26th of January 2013 at 11:04 pm, an 18 year old Woodland man and his two juvenile friends, 17 & 16 years old, were walking westbound on Court St near Fourth St, when 5 male subjects ran up to them from behind. The 5 subjects appeared to have ranged in ages from 17 to 19 years old. In the group were 3 Hispanic youths, a White male juvenile, and a Black male juvenile.
