Three Sierra Vista teens are being charged as adults in an alleged robbery incident where a young boy was attacked on Sept. 8, police say. 

Michael Hays and Xaria Garcia, both 16 years old, and Savannah Livesay, 17, face charges for aggravated robbery, burglary, kidnapping, and three counts of aggravated assault, a Sierra Vista police news release said.

At about 10 p.m., a woman, her son and grandson returned to an apartment complex in the 300 block of North 7th Street. The young boy was the first to the apartment door as his mom was retrieving her grandson, police said.

He found it kicked in and people inside.

Before the teens fled, they allegedly hit the boy "numerous" times after pushing him into a window, the news release said.

The boy suffered multiple cuts that required stitches at a hospital.
