An 18-year old is under arrest after an assault Thursday afternoon at the Collings West Sacramento Teen Center on Merkley Avenue. The 16-year old male victim was treated and released for minor injuries.

Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department said police got the call at about 2:05 p.m.:

     “The suspect entered the teen center with the sole purpose of beating up a (particular) juvenile who was in the teen center playing video games,” said Sockman. “He hit him a couple times in the face, and the victim was bleeding from the face.”

A number of officers sped to the scene to try to figure out if the suspect was among the teens milling about. He wasn’t.

“The police showed up en masse. All the kids had basically the same clothing as the description of the suspect. Officers determined where the suspect lived and arrested him there.”

Eric Lizzarraga was arrested for felony assault, and jailed.
