Police: Teens used slingshot to bust ambulance window while patient was inside
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KATV) —
Two teenagers are accused of using a slingshot and glass marbles to bust out vehicle windows, including a Lifenet ambulance that was carrying a patient.
Hot Springs police arrested 18-year-old Tyler York and a 16-year-old, whose name has not been released, on three counts of aggravated assault and three counts of first-degree criminal mischief on Wednesday
Their arrests follow three separate complaints of windows on vehicles being "shot out" on Dec. 14, but police say the suspects used a slingshot and not a firearm.
The suspect vehicle in all three incidents was described as a red Jeep Wrangler.
Police say they were able to develop two suspects "through diligent work and the cooperation with the public."
