Police say two South Hall teens assaulted two other teens with hammers in what an investigator described as a “fight among teenagers.”

Christian Sanchez, 17, of Oakwood, and Steven Lane, 19, of Flowery Branch, are accused of entering a Flowery Branch home Nov. 2 and assaulting the two teenage victims, police said.

Neither of the victims were seriously injured, but both were treated and released at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Braselton.

Police responded before 11 p.m. Nov. 2 to Fireside Lane in reference to an assault in progress.

Investigator Robin Kemp said the victims were previously acquainted with the suspects. Kemp described it as a “fight among teenagers,” though the investigator did not elaborate further on motive.

Kemp said Sanchez and Lane were identified as suspects and arrested on Nov. 5.

Magistrate Court officials were unclear if either suspect had retained an attorney.

Sanchez and Lane are charged with aggravated assault and first-degree burglary. They were both booked Nov. 5 in to the Hall County Jail, where they remain.
