Two have been arrested, but several others are unidentified. Brownsville Police are looking for the others who they believe were involved in a stabbing on Thursday afternoon.
“Both of you are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon," said Municipal Judge Phil Bellamy.
At least two of possibly five teens accused in blitzing three other teens from behind were charged Friday.
The boys, 17 year old Eduardo Gomez and 19 year old Juan Alberto Gonzales were caught shortly after the alleged attack Thursday which happened just before 3p.m.
Several witnesses reported seeing the teens come up from behind and assault three brothers, aged 15,17, and 18, as they were walking to pick up their younger sister from Perkins middle school.
"One of the victims was stabbed in the back of the head, he had lacerations to his head and thigh, another victim was punched on the back of the head and neck and the third victim was also punched in the back of his head and neck," said the Cameron County Assistant District Attorney.
The two young men are no stranger to the law, both have been arrested several times on nearly a dozen different charges, some of which are felony charges.
Investigators are still working to determine the reason behind the attack on the brothers.
Gomez and Gonzales' bonds have been set at 44-thousand dollars each.
