As the three suspects in connection with the assault of a 19-year-old earlier month await formal charges, there is new information about the victim. Show Low Police say Joey Jaurique was attacked by two teenage boys at Show Low Lake after being lured there by a 17-year-old girl. He was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital but has since been released and is recovering at home. Show Low Police are recommending the three be charged with aggravated assault disfigurement and conspiracy, with an added suggestion of a facilitation charge for the girl. District officials also say the FBI is now involved in the investigation. The “White Mountain Independent” reports a restraining order has been issued on Jaurique by the parent of a boy, who alleges that Jaurique fractured the boy’s face and threatened him with a firearm on August 8th, which is the same day Jaurique was attacked. The restraining order was issued on August 10th. A hearing has been set for September 23rd in that case. The Navajo County Attorney’s Office is still investigating the original matter with the three teens. All three have withdrawn from school.
