Three Teens On The Run Following Brutal Beating and Auto-Theft

Three teens from a Loomis group home accused of a vicious assault on their caregiver eluded police twice on Thursday. The truck the teens are accused of stealing was spotted twice by the California Highway Patrol, but both times, they managed to get away.

It started with a 911 call in Loomis on Tuesday morning after three teens brutally attacked a caregiver, severed his finger and then stole his truck. Placer County Sheriff’s deputies found the victim, a man in his 20s, after the attack.

The man is recovering from serious injuries that aren’t life-threatening but include a severed finger.

The suspects also took some of his items and his truck. That truck was spotted in two Bay Area counties.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department first located the stolen vehicle on Thursday morning and gave chase. That chase, as well as one later in Salinas, was called off because of high speed, erratic driving and a concern for public safety.

Felony arrest warrants are out for these three teens:

Jeremiah Thyne, Hispanic, standing 5’6″ and weighing 120 pounds with brown hair, brown eyes and a tattoo of four dots on his elbow.

Nathan James Rust, Native American, standing 5’10” and weighing 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Julian Cristian Mercado, Hispanic, standing 5’4″ and weighing 130 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. He has several tattoos including Chinese writing on his neck, a teardrop tattoo on his face, four dots on his hand, and the name Karrie on his right inner arm.
