*because he is a juvenile we will only be referring to the 14-year old suspect as “RJ” *

The 14-year old was identified as R.J., who police say lives just blocks away from where the attack to place. RJ’s 10-year old, younger brother was reportedly released by police overnight without being charged. R.J and his 10-year old brother were allegedly a part of a group of seven teens that beat the 73-year old with multiple objects on June 24th.

Police say they have been in touch with some, but not all of the 5 remaining teenage suspects. Police also said they put a $20,000 reward out for anyone who may have been present during, or have information on the June 24th assault.
