MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Muncie police have arrested a 17-year-old boy in connection with the severe beatings of two brothers, one of whom was injured so badly he suffered bleeding on the brain.

The teenage suspect was arrested Friday on a preliminary aggravated battery charge and is being held at the Delaware County Juvenile Detention Center.

Muncie police Lt. Steve Cox tells The Star Press ( ) he expects more arrests in the attacks reported Nov. 23 that seriously injured 19-year-old Chase A. Woolums and 17-year-old James Woolums. The brothers remain hospitalized and Chase Woolums suffered head injuries that caused brain bleeding.

Police have declined to discuss details of the attacks, or a possible motive, because their investigation is ongoing.

Cox says police are beginning to believe several people were involved in the brothers’ beatings.
