Battery with serious injury

At about 2 a.m. on June 19, a man and two friends were walking near the intersection of Villa and Castro streets when an unknown object struck the victim in the head, splitting the man's lip, a Mountain View police spokesman said.

Neither the victim nor his friends could identify what hit the victim, said police spokesman Steve McCoy.

Vandalism at Graham Middle School

Three youths were arrested, cited and released to their parents on June 18 after a city parks worker noticed a mattress in the middle of the Graham Middle School field at about 7 a.m., a police spokesman said.

The parks worker approached the mattress, and found the three youth, who apparently had a sleep-out, Mountain View police spokesman Steve McCoy said. The city worker also found a 2-foot- square of burned artificial turf adjacent to the makeshift campsite. When he called Mountain View police, the subjects fled on foot.

Police arrived on the scene, tracked down and detained one of the suspects, McCoy said. Through investigation, police identified the other two subjects. All three subjects were charged with arson and a court date is pending, McCoy said.

Damage to the artificial turf was estimated about approximately $1,000, McCoy said.
