According to Alexandria Police, the incident happened in the 3300 block of King Street.
Police said they arrested and charged a 15-year-old in connection with the assault. Investigators did not release the suspect's information since he is a juvenile.
Granados suffered a severe cut on his face in the attack.

"I feel like these kids are picking on the weak ones," said Jose Bryan Granados. "I feel like they are going after the new kids they are making extortions and that's not okay."
Granados' family says the suspects were arrested, and they will press charges. However, police have not confirmed that information.
