Two teenagers were arrested Wednesday in Anderson after police said they severely beat a 15-year-old with an aluminum baseball bat. Donavan Ball, an 18-year-old from Anderson, and David Rivera, a 17-year-old from Chicago, were charged with attempted murder. The incident took place at about 4:45 p.m. in the 600 block of East 27th Street. The victim sustained multiple skull fractures and brain trauma, but was able to talk to police. Ball and Rivera were taken into custody last night after resisting arrest.
