2 seriously injured in alleged race-related assault

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two suspects were arrested on aggravated assault charges today in connection to a fight at an apartment complex that left two victims with serious injuries.

Two victims of a reported fight at The Seasons Apartment Complex in the 800 block of E. Wetmore Road went to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries on July 14.
