Three Boys Arrested in California for Assaulting Homeless Man

Witnesses reported that three juvenile males were attacking a homeless adult in California, leading to the arrest of the three adolescents.

A report of an attack using a lethal weapon prompted the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) to go to a scene in downtown Long Beach, close to the intersection on Pacific Avenue.

According to the police, the three teens and the homeless man got into a verbal argument, after which the youths started beating the victim with a tripod and tent poles and threw things at the man.

The minors fled the area as police arrived, but they were reportedly apprehended, according to the authorities.

According to reports, a video shows officers placing a 12-year-old in handcuffs and transferring him to a police car.  The remaining two boys were 14 and 15 years old.

Assault and conspiring to commit a crime are the accusations against the three individuals. Their ages prevented their identities from being disclosed.

The victim’s upper body suffered injuries, but they weren’t life-threatening. He refused to be brought to a hospital after receiving treatment from paramedics.

Some have said that California’s homeless problem is the highest in the country, with an estimated 30 percent of America’s homeless population living on the streets.

Crimes committed by and against homeless individuals have increased as a result of this problem.

According to real estate evaluations, a typical Long Beach residence sells for about $840,000.

A homeless man reportedly punched a 6-year-old Santa Monica girl without cause in a disturbing event that occurred not long ago.

A friend of the 6-year-old victim’s family, Christina Tullock, issued a caution to anybody planning a vacation in California.  She told the local media that no one should come to Venice Beach or Los Angeles.  It’s not safe for children or seniors. The place is out of control.

The girl escaped with minor injuries, and the man was taken into custody after another unrelated attack on a 7-year-old child.
