Richland County sheriff's deputies hope surveillance video will help identify several wanted in connection with an aggravated assault May 27.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said the assault happened around 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Plain and Truman Streets.

The 15-year-old victim was struck in the upper body by an object and was transported to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital in serious condition, Lott said.

Lott said the suspects may have possibly fled the area in a black suburban. No other description was immediately available.

Anyone with information about the identities of those in the surveillance video is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Tipsters can earn a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
