A 16-year-old Alamo boy was charged with battery causing serious bodily injury in connection with a fight late Saturday night in the San Ramon Valley High parking lot that sent a man more than twice his age to the hospital, according to Danville police.
The teen, whose name was not released, was taken into custody and then released to his parents, which is standard procedure with such juvenile crimes, Danville police chief Steve Simpkins said in a statement Monday.
Officers responded to the high school's rear parking lot, next to the Iron Horse Regional Trail, around 11:50 p.m. Saturday after receiving a report about a fight in the area, according to Simpkins.
Arriving officers found a 39-year-old Danville man who had been injured in the fight and required immediate medical attention, Simpkins said. The man, whose name was not revealed, was treated at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and later released.
During the subsequent investigation, authorities found the Alamo teen who was also involved in the altercation and charged him in connection with the incident, according to the police chief.
The incident remains under investigation, and anyone with information about the case can contact Det. Sgt. Brian Sliger at 314-3700 or Bsliger@danville.ca.gov.
