     The Simi Valley Police Department reports that two park employees were attacked by a gang of teenagers at a park Thursday night resulting in one of the employees being hospitalized.

     They say the Rancho Simi Parks and Recreation employees had gone to Berylwood Park off Los Angeles Avenue around 7:45 PM to conduct routine maintenance.

     Police say that the workers encountered a group of about a dozen teenagers ranging in age from 13-16.

     The employees asked the teens to move and that led to an altercation during which the workers were attacked.

     One worker suffered injuries that required hospitalization, the other had minor injuries.

     Police say the teens fled after the incident and were still at large.
