SAN MATEO COUNTY, Calif. —
A Half Moon Bay man was arrested Friday in connection with the assault and robbery of two teenage boys in the San Mateo County town of Montara, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
Alec Silva, 18, is the second suspect to be arrested in connection with the May 4th attack on two boys, ages 13 and 14 years old, sheriff's office officials said.
The boys were playing on the basketball courts at Farallone View School in Montara when they were approached by two older teenagers who made derogatory remarks, the sheriff's office said.
When the younger boys yelled back, they were chased into a wooded area in the Rancho Corral De Tierra Preserve, which lies north of the school.
The victims attempted to hide, but they were discovered, the sheriff's office said.
The suspects allegedly assaulted them with their fists and stole a watch, a cell phone and one of the victim's tennis shoes.
The two assailants drove off in a gray Suzuki Samurai.
One of the suspects was later identified as Austin Krieger, 18, of Moss Beach. Krieger was contacted at his home on May 9th and arrested for assault and robbery, the sheriff's office said.
Evidence linked to the case was reportedly seized from his home, according to the sheriff's office.
A $300,000 warrant was issued for Silva's arrest on Monday on suspicion of robbery and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury.
Silva turned himself in Friday afternoon and was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
