Eight SF teens arrested in gang beatings

Friday, September 12, 2008

(09-11) 18:29 PDT San Francisco — A group of alleged gang members were arrested Wednesday in connection with a series of violent assaults over the past two months in the Richmond and Sunset districts, San Francisco police announced today.

Duc Trong, 18, and seven other teens – whose names were not released because they are juveniles – were arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault, using a deadly weapon and false imprisonment, police said. The suspects, all San Francisco residents, were arrested at different locations around the city Wednesday morning. Investigators served search warrants and seized evidence at each of the locations, police said.

Investigators said the teens are all members of a Chinese gang that calls itself the True Brothers. Authorities accused the boys of using baseball bats and knives in five attacks against other juveniles, including members of a rival gang and youths not associated with any gang. In one case, police said, a victim was left with life-threatening injuries.
