Two teenage boys have been arrested after allegedly attacking a group of people who were digging up night crawlers along a bike trail in the Richardson Village neighborhood of north Sacramento, police said.
Sgt. Norm Leong said a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit a crime. A gang enhancement was also added for the boys, who belong to a gang, police said.
The boys were part of a group that attacked another group at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday near the bike trail off of the 3300 block of Altos Avenue.
Leong said one of three victims was a man in his 30s. Another victim was the man's sister, Leong said. It's not clear the relationship between the third victim and the first two.
An online police log reported that three people were digging up night crawlers when four juvenile boys approached them. One of the juveniles punched one of the three victims in the face. The suspects took off and returned with another handful of people. They fired several shots at the victims and a victim's house before fleeing, police said.
No one was hurt and no damage was done to the house.
A few hours later, at about 5:45 a.m., officers received a call reporting that some of the same suspects returned to the area.
Police found five people, who tried to escape. They detained three and arrested two who they found to be gang members, Leong said.
