Three Woodland teens arrested in attack on 13-year-old

From Niesha Lofing:

Three teenagers were arrested Tuesday night after allegedly beating and stabbing a 13-year-old in a Woodland neighborhood.

Woodland police received a call of shots fired at 7:30 p.m. in the area of Lemen Avenue and Donnelly Circle, a police news release said. They found the victim had been beaten and stabbed in the upper torso.

Witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored sport utility vehicle leaving the scene.

The victim was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment.

About two hours later, police returned to the neighborhood on a report of a dark-colored SUV and red Chrysler 300 driving recklessly.

An officer stopped the SUV, and a witness identified the occupants of the vehicle - two 15-year-olds and Milton Escobedo, 18 - and said they were at the scene of the stabbing, police said.

The witness told police Escobedo beat the victim with a baseball bat and that one of the 15-year-olds stabbed the victim.

The three teens were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy. One 15-year-old also was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Escobedo was arrested on suspicion of assault.

Police also received a call from Woodland Memorial Hospital that a 15-year-old with a stab wound to the neck had arrived there, but it is unknown whether the two stabbings are related.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at (530) 661-7800.
