Brothers Jumped in Old Town Goleta

Two brothers who had just moved from the Eastside to Old Town Goleta were jumped as they walked down the street during the early morning hours of 7/25.

An assault with a deadly weapon incident report was taken, Arnoldi said, though investigators are light on leads.
