ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) – Two teenagers are behind bars after they allegedly attacked a teen as he was trying to bring groceries home to his family.
Deputies tracked down three juveniles accused of knocking 19-year-old Ridnel Meus off his bike and beating him.
Meus told police he thought he knew one of the suspects because they had an argument over stolen property.

Deputies said Meus was riding his bike after buying groceries for his family in Pine Hills when the suspects jumped him.
