TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tempe police are looking for teenager who allegedly attacked three people with a baseball bat at a party late last month.

Tempe Police Lt. Michael Pooley said a group of high school students was having a party at a home near College Avenue and Broadway Road in Tempe on Jan. 25, when at least 10 other high school-aged people showed up.

One of the partygoers asked the people to leave, and the suspect began hitting at least three people with a bat, hitting one in the head and another in the face. They were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The suspect and friends left in two vehicles, a blue extended-cab pickup truck and a red pickup truck.

Tempe police said the suspect is described as a 17- or 18-year-old black man. He's about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds with a thin build.
