Parents turn in final suspect in senior citizen attack

Pinellas Park, Florida -- The 83-year-old victim who was beaten, stabbed, robbed and then had his car stolen is smiling again after police say the three teens involved are behind bars.

Despite being injured, after the attack Charles Clark was worried about others, "Who is going to be the one after me?"

Now that all three teens are off the streets, he is much more relieved, "I am very glad, very glad."

The last suspect was turned in by her parents and arrested Thursday night. She remained silent when questioned about what happened - unlike the other suspects.

Clark called the previous apologies from the two other subjects "bologna."

"He is not sorry - sorry he got caught that's all."

Clark hopes the judicial system will set these teens straight.

"I think they need punishment, then if they want to straighten out and say sorry that's okay."

All of the teens will remain behind bars while their charges are reviewed.
