Two additional arrests made in I-35 rock throwing incident


Two more juveniles have been arrested in relation to the rock throwing incident on June 29, in which kids were throwing rocks and pieces of concrete off a bridge in Waco in the 800 block of I-35.

The two juveniles have been charged with criminal mischief and engaging in organized crime. Detectives plan to arrest one more person, but they have not been able to find him yet.

Waco police say four juveniles were throwing rocks and pieces of concrete off the Forrest exit bridge just after 1:00 a.m. The juveniles hit eight vehicles in a 45 minute period.

Sources tell News Channel 25 a woman sleeping in the backseat of a van was hit and suffered serious facial injuries. The victims range in age from 64 to 19 years old and all were treated on the scene by ETMC. Most of the victims had cuts from the glass shards of the broken windshields.

Police tracked down the juveniles to Cherry and Plum streets and arrested two black males, 11 and 13 years old. The DPS helicopter helped locate several suspects.

The two that were arrested previously have been taken to the Juvenile Detention Center and have been charged with aggravated assault, organized criminal activity and eight counts of criminal mischief.

Waco police are continuing their investigation and have received another report of damage these suspects may have done.
