|On Thursday, July 25, 2013 at approximately 2104 hours, Woodland Police officers responded to 128 Summerwood Drive for a report of fight in progress.|
Upon arrival, officers found the victim, 72-year-old Woodland resident, down on the grass in front of 128 Summerwood. Medical personnel arrived and began to treat the victim for non-life-threatening injuries while officers spoke to witnesses.
Officers learned that approximately 15-20 juveniles, all approximately 14-16 years of age, confronted the victim regarding an earlier incident involving a broken window while the juveniles were playing soccer in front of the victim’s residence.
During the confrontation, the victim was struck by one of the juvenile suspects, who was holding what appeared to be a folding metal scooter and using it as a weapon.
Witnesses were not able to give any further descriptions of any of the juveniles and the juveniles apparently ran in all directions prior to police arrival.
This investigation is ongoing and anyone with any information about the incident or the suspects involved is encouraged to contact the Woodland Police Department at (530) 666-2411.
