Not sure why this publication is always the last to get news out, but I do enjoy reading the comments. Hope I read a lot about the parents. Did they not raise this child correctly?

A 39-year-old Danville man survived a vicious beating at the hands of a teenager in the parking lot of a high school near a trail late Saturday night, police said.

The 16-year-old boy, from Alamo, faces charges in juvenile court of battery causing serious bodily injury after his run-in with the man in a parking lot of San Ramon Valley High School that runs adjacent to the Iron Horse Trail, Danville police Chief Steve Simpkins said.

The man told police he was walking home on the trail and cut through the parking lot on his way there. Other teens also were present at the fight, Simpkins said, though police would not say how many. They weren't arrested but could face charges before the investigation is complete, Simpkins said…
