Teens beaten with baseball bat in South El Monte

SOUTH EL MONTE — Two teenage boys suffered injuries in baseball bat attack late Friday, authorities said.
Few details were initially available regarding the 11:59 p.m. incident in the 2000 block of Santa Anita Avenue, near Rush Street, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Ann Devane said. The teens did not appear to be fully cooperating with investigators.
They were with a group of four or five others when two attackers described only as Latino exited a white, 4-door, older model car and assaulted the two victims with a baseball bat, Devane said.
The teens told deputies the attack was unprovoked, and they had no idea why they were beaten, the sergeant said.
One of the boys was hospitalized with injuries including an apparent broken nose, and the other was bleeding from his head, the sergeant said. The injuries were not believed to be major.
