A 60 year old woman, who works at a juvenile placement facility in the 1100 Block of Tuolumne, was attacked by two juveniles temporarily placed with the residential program.
The victim was working at the facility when the two suspects bound and assaulted her. Demands were made for the keys to the facility’s van, but the victim did not have access to the vehicle.
