Another arrest in vicious beating of Hamilton teen

A second teen has been arrested in connection with a brutal attack last November on a 15 year old Hamilton boy.

Noah Rabbani was walking home from a friend's along Fletcher Road when two men got out of a car and brutally beat him with a baseball bat before stealing his backpack.

An 18 year old Hamilton man has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and robbery as well as possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

In December police arrested another 18 year old man in connection with the attack.

That arrest came as police were investigating a string of break ins.

Police say there is still nothing to indicate the incident was a hate crime.
