Teen seriously hurt in attack

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.

While at the hospital, the teen said the three people who attacked him were his close friends but refused to provide any other information. A girl that had been with the teen told police they were walking down the street when a car pulled up behind them and the three suspects jumped out and attacked the teen. The girl said she hurt her wrist trying to break the fight up but was also uncooperative with police.

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