        Two white teens accused of participating in an attack on a black man were indicted Friday by a Hamilton County grand jury on two counts each of felonious assault and one count each of ethnic intimidation.

        Kevin Carroll, 17, and Joshua Yaden, 15, both of Camp Washington, along with two white adults, are accused of beating and stabbing Theodore Jenkins, 43.

        Mr. Jenkins was walking home from his Camp Washington job shortly before 2:30 a.m. Nov. 24 when he was attacked by a group of four males and one female. Police said they hit him in the head and stabbed him four times while shouting racial slurs.

        Mr. Carroll and Mr. Yaden originally were sent to Hamilton County Juvenile Court. Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon ordered them tried in adult court because of the seriousness of the offense.

        Monday, co-defendants Christina Noel, 22, and Calvin Cooper, 21, are scheduled for a procedural hearing before Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Ann Marie Tracey. Each is charged with three counts of felonious assault and ethnic intimidation.

        Charges were dismissed against the fourth male.

        Mr. Jenkins' injuries were not life-threatening and he continues to recover, officials said.
