A Fostoria teen who was among those charged in the September beating of two men in Bowling Green will serve one year in the Ohio Department of Youth Services.
Miguel Arana, 17, received the disposition in his case Thursday before Wood County Juvenile Court Judge David Woessner.
Arana was one of three Fostoria teens charged in the Sept. 8 beating of two men in the 800 block of Sixth Street. The others are Dominique Fuller, 16, and Rolando Silva, 16, both of Fostoria.
According to police, the two men were walking in the area when the three boys exited a white Chevy Blazer "and just started to assault them for no reason."
The boys reportedly beat the two men with their fists, and then turned to kicking them when their victims had fallen to the ground.
Fuller and Silva were both players on the Fostoria High School football team, and Bowling Green had played Fostoria in football that night.
The two men were taken to Wood County Hospital for treatment of their injuries.
In addition to his minimum one-year commitment, Arana is to have no contact with either his codefendants or the victims, must enter into drug and alcohol treatment, must write letters of apology to the victims, and complete 24 hours of community service in lieu of fines and costs, according to Tim Brown, executive director of the Wood County Juvenile Court.
Silva and Fuller reportedly both admitted to the felonious assault charges and their cases were transferred to Seneca County Juvenile Court for disposition.
