Posted: March 12, 2013

Two teens are charged with aggravated assault after they allegedly knocked a third male into a campfire during an attack in Medford, Burlington County, early Sunday.

Spencer Tomlin, 18, of Reids Ferry Court, Medford, and Wassim Elsaadi, 18, of Sandstone Court, Medford, were arrested and released pending an upcoming court appearance.

Medford police say they were called about 4:12 a.m. to a wooded area on Jackson Road, near power lines that run nearby.

There, they were met by a 21-year-old man who told them Tomlin and Elsaadi had attacked him while he was next to a campfire. He said he fell into the fire during the attack.

The duo was no longer at the scene when police arrived.

The victim was taken to Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly for numerous injuries including cuts, bruises and second-degree burns on his arms and stomach.

He was treated and released.
