VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Vancouver police have arrested six teens they say assaulted two different men in separate attacks last week.

Officers responded to a report of a man being assaulted while walking near East Fourth Plain Boulevard and Northeast Stapleton Road on Aug. 22. The man told police that he had been attacked by a group of young men.

Less than two hours later, officers responded to a second attack with a similar description, this time at near East 18th Street and General Anderson Avenue.

Police initially said both victims suffered non-life threatening injuries, however the second victim remained in the hospital Tuesday with injuries described as serious. He was released from the hospital by Tuesday night. 

After an investigation, detectives from the Vancouver Police Department's Neighborhood Response Team arrested a 13-year-old, two 14-year-olds and two 15-year-olds. The five all face charges of robbery, assault and criminal mischief, and additional charges may still be pending, according to police.

On Tuesday evening, police said a sixth suspect, who is 17 years old, had also been arrested. 

The department noted they are continuing the investigation in this case.
