ATLANTA — A teenager is hospitalized with burns covering 70 percent of his body after two other teens attacked him with a pot of boiling rice while he was sleeping.

WSB-TV reports the 17-year-old victim is in a medically-induced coma in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta after last Monday’s attack.

Officers have arrested 19-year-old Quintavious Barber and 18-year-old Malik Morton for aggravated assault and cruelty to a child, among other charges.

Relatives of the scalded victim say the two men accused him of stealing a PlayStation 3. Neighbors say the three teens were friends.

It’s unclear if Barber or Morton has a lawyer.
