Six Arrested in Connection to Violent Group Attack on Teenager in Gilbert, Arizona

Gilbert police have announced two additional arrests in connection to a violent group attack on a teenager that occurred in August. The suspects, identified as 19-year-old Deleon Haynes and a 17-year-old teenager, have been charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault. This brings the total number of arrests in this case to six, according to authorities.

Previously, 18-year-old Christopher Fantastic and Aris Arredondo, both aged 18, along with two 16-year-olds, were accused of participating in the same brutal attack that took place in a parking lot in Gilbert. Fantastic is currently being held on a $25,000 secured bond, as per jail records. Arredondo appeared before a judge on Thursday and is also being held on a $25,000 secured bond. The two 16-year-olds will be referred to the Maricopa County Juvenile Court.

Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell has been actively involved in the case. On January 19, she announced that Fantastic had been indicted for aggravated robbery and aggravated assault. Just three days later, on January 22, Mitchell revealed another indictment, this time against Aris Arredondo for the same charges.
