CBS News David Lamont remains in critical condition
Lamont was at his home on Middleton Place Saturday night when he heard a group of kids making too much noise; when he went outside and told the teens to keep it quiet, he was beaten into a coma. His wife, Agnes, found him on the sidewalk, unconscious in a pool of blood.
Lamont, who has two daughters, has been in a coma ever since.
According to CBS News, police say a group of local teenagers witnessed the beating outside Lamont's home, but it was the 18-year-old who has been targeted by police as the only person of interest.
"We have no reason to believe that there were any additional people who were present or involved in the incident," Sgt. Maria Munayer told the news station. "The Pleasanton teens are only considered witnesses."
Munayer also said it's unlikely they'll be able to arrest this unidentified person anytime soon since investigators can't talk to the victim until he recovers.
In the meantime, think good thoughts for the Lamont family and if you have any information about this case do call the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
