ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police have arrested a teenager in an assault that left a bicyclist with a skull fracture.

Police say in a statement a 15-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday with assault charges referred against him.

The youth is accused of walking with two other boys on the Chester Creek Trail Monday morning near Goose Lake. As a bicyclist approached, police say the youth swung a five-foot long tree branch, hitting the man in the face.

The 43-year-old cyclist also suffered a broken nose and a fractured right orbital bone and will eventually require surgery.

From the man’s description of the assailant, including clothing, detectives and resource officers at East High School were able to make identifications. The other two boys have not been charged.
