    Michael Mora, 71, was beaten outside his Aptos home Saturday.

    Police say they have found the teen who allegedly attacked a 71-year-old man outside a house party in Aptos Saturday night.

    The 16-year-old was arrested Tuesday for allegedly attacking Michael Mora after he asked a group of teenagers to move their cars.

    Police believed the teenager pushed Michael Mora down a hill.

    Mora’s wife says dozens of teens were at a nearby house party and several cars were blocking their street and driveway.

    Mora – who suffered broken bones, a bloody face and a brain injury – had emergency brain surgery and is still in the hospital.
