Falls police are investigating an attack on a 17-year-old city teen that left him with serious injuries.
Police were called to a 90th Street about 2:30 a.m. Sunday for a report of an assault. The teen said he was jumped from behind by three unknown males. Officers noted the teen had numerous lacerations on the top of his head and he was taken to Memorial Medical Center.

A doctor at Memorial said the teen had suffered serious physical injuries but they were not elaborated on in the report.
