Three suspects are facing charges after police said they assaulted a teenager and stole his bicycle on Tuesday.

All three suspects were wearing face coverings during the assault, which happened on South East Lane.

When Blairsville police went to serve Kirkland with an arrest warrant on Thursday, investigators found marijuana, a scale, baggies and numerous amounts of drug paraphernalia.

He was not at the residence at that time, but was taken into custody later in the day without incident.

Kirkland is facing additional charges, including possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He is in the Indiana County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
