CHICAGO – A third person has been charged in connection with a brutal attack on a 15-year-old Chicago boy who refused to join a gang.

Police on Thursday announced that Marco Garcia-Bojorquez was charged with attempted first-degree murder in the March attack in the city’s Little Village neighborhood.

The teen victim was struck in the face, stabbed, robbed of his belongings and thrown in a garbage bin, but survived.

The 27-year-old Garcia-Bojorquez was scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday. It was not immediately clear whether he already had an attorney.
