A Southern California man remained in critical condition after he was beaten nearly to death by at least seven teenagers wielding skateboards, according to police in Huntington Beach.

Police Lt. Mitchell O’Brien said the 25-year-old man suffered life-threatening head injuries during Friday night’s attack, The Associated Press reported.

O’Brian told City News Service that four youths, ages 14 to 16, were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and three others are being sought.

The four teenagers in custody could face attempted murder charges. All four are on probation for previous crimes.

O’Brien said the man and his girlfriend intervened in a fight between two groups at a crowded skate park.

The skateboarders then turned on the couple. O’Brien said the man was chased to a coin laundry across the street and beaten with skateboards.
