Another victim was identified and additional suspects are being sought in connection with last week’s beating of a 49-year-old woman in Lake County, a sheriff’s spokesman said Friday.
The woman was found early Aug. 17 in Lakeport, lying in the intersection of Meadow Lane and California Street, Lt. Steve Brooks said.
She had severe facial injuries, was unable to speak and had trouble breathing, he said.
She was taken to a trauma center outside of Lake County.
Witness information led to the arrest of a 16-year-old suspect, who was booked into Juvenile Hall, Brooks said.
On Thursday, detectives interviewed other witnesses who identified other suspects and another victim, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office major crimes unit at 263-2690.
