Guam - The Guam Police Department's Criminal Justice Strike Force made eight arrests in connection with last weekend's assault of three United States Marines. The active duty personnel reported that they got out of a vehicle near the Sling Shot ride in Tumon and were attacked by a group of young men.

The victims sustained minors injuries and were treated at the hospital and released. Police learned that the suspects are affiliated with a street gang known as H-Up Ruckus, comprised of young boys from Central Guam.  GPD spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says interviews with the gang members revealed the attacks were random and not directed to the military.

18-year-old Duane Marvin Naputi and 19-year-old Marcus Erwyn Damian were arrested on charges of assault, guilt established by complicity, rioting, conspiracy, disorderly conduct and jurisdiction over an adult. Three male minors ages 15,16, and 17 were confined at the Department of Youth Affairs. Two 14-year-olds and a 15-year-old were ordered to appear at a later time and were released to their parents.

Police also connected two of the suspects to a separate assault that was also reported last Saturday.
