STERLING (WIFR) -- Two 18-year-olds have been arrested for allegedly breaking into a home and beating up a juvenile.

Sterling Police say Blake Elliott and Austin Cox, both of Rock Falls, are charged with home invasion and battery. They were taken to the Whiteside County Jail in lieu of bond.

Police say the suspects and the victim knew each other and had an ongoing dispute between them and the incident was not a random act of violence.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for minor injuries. Police are also looking for a third juvenile suspect who lives in the Sterling/Rock Falls area.
