- The teen who turned himself in Monday for throwing a brick at a car and nearly killing a 2-year-old girl has been charged in two separate incidents.

He was charged with assault with intent to create great bodily harm less than murder, felonious assault, throwing objects at trains/cars causing property damage and malicious destruction of property more than $200 and less than $1,000.
