HOMELAND - Four underage suspects in two recent robberies, including one in which the victim was attacked with baseball bats, were arrested today while trying to get back into the United States from Mexico, a sheriff's sergeant said.

The suspects, who were stopped in a stolen vehicle at a San Diego border crossing, are suspected in two Homeland robberies, one last Friday and the other on Monday, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Ryan Hoxmeier said.

credit cards and ran off, Hoxmeier said.

In the Monday robbery, which was reported at 12:30 a.m. near Leon and Fretwell Avenue, the suspects allegedly "assaulted the victim with baseball bats," took his wallet and money and stole his vehicle, Hoxmeier said.

The victim, whose name was not released, underwent emergency surgery at Riverside County Regional Medical Center and was admitted to the intensive care unit, Hoxmeier said.

The suspects, whose names were withheld because they are juveniles, were booked into Southwest Juvenile Hall in Murrieta on suspicion of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery and carjacking.
