CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati Police have made two arrests in a rock-throwing incident on Columbia Parkway from earlier this month.

Police arrested a male juvenile just before 9 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Another suspect, Joseph Burdine, 18, turned himself into police around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night. Both are charged with one count of felonious assault.

The juvenile is accused of throwing rocks at several cars on June 14. There were nearly a dozen reports of damage. One woman, Joyce Baresel, suffered a head injury when she was struck by a five pound rock.

Police say the 16-year-old juvenile told them he and Burdine were throwing the rocks "for fun." The teens are neighbors on Riverside Dr. The 16-year-old is being held at the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center, and the 18-year-old is in the Hamilton County Jail.

Police say they were led to the suspects after citizen tips over the weekend.

Baresel issued the following statement:

"I received word that an arrest was made in my case. At this time, I do not have a comment regarding the suspects.  The entire event has been difficult to handle and I am concentrating on my recovery.  However I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Cincinnati Police Department for their continued efforts.  Special thanks to Detective Moy and Chief Streicher for their focus and dedication towards solving this case.  I also would like to thank my family, friends and the Cincinnati community for their overwhelming support, prayers and well-wishes."

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
