Teen Beaten in Home Invasion

A brutal attack put an 18-year-old Rio Linda man in the hospital Wednesday morning.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies say two men broke through the front door with a bat and brass knuckles and beat Tim Wallin repeatedly in the head.

Wallin says he had to have two staples put in his skull to hold the gash closed. He also has a concussion.

Deputies do not believe this attack was random, and neither does Wallin.

“A kid getting mad at me, something he couldn’t control. He didn’t want to fight on his own so he called his uncle,” said Wallin.

Deputies are also looking into the possibility that drugs could be involved in this attack, but Wallin says he has never taken or sold any form of illegal drugs.
