Police received a call from neighbors at 11:43 p.m. who said the mugging took place at Walker Drive and Taylor Court, Wylie said. The teens fled into the park and onto the trail, witnesses said, and police ultimately contacted the boys as they were exiting the trail near Middlefield Road. After detaining several boys, the police received word that the victim was in stable condition and being treated for stab wounds from a screwdriver.
Police located the screwdriver, and three of the teenage boys — two 16 and one 17, all from Mountain View — were booked into juvenile hall and charged with attempted homicide, Wylie said. Two other teens were detained but not charged.
The investigation is still in progress, Wylie said. Police believe the incident may have been gang related and are attempting to determine if others were involved.
