Police now have the man they've been searching for in Brownsville.
18 year-old John Albert Martinez turned himself into police on Thursday morning and was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and the judge set his bond for Martinez at $150,000 dollars. Martinez is accused of beating a 17 year-old boy with a metal pipe on September 8th and the teen is still in critical condition. Police say if the teen dies from his injuries, Martinez will be charged with murder.
Martinez is also accused of slashing another teen in the face with a broken bottle and that teen is recovering.
