FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a second suspect in a violent machete attack near Keystone.

Deputy District Attorney John Franks says the 16-year-old boy has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, menacing and conspiracy for the June 17 attack on Swan Mountain Road east of Sapphire Point. The Summit Daily reports (https://bit.ly/UCBias ) the DA’s office is expected to determine within about a week whether to try the boy as an adult.

A deputy found the 18-year-old victim stumbling on the road, covered in blood and with deep cuts on his face.

The man, whose name has not been released, told investigators 20-year-old Tyrus Walter Vanmatre, of Littleton, drove him to Summit County under false pretenses and attacked him. The victim fought back, escaped and hid in the woods.
