The Morgantown Police Department has identified two individuals in connection with the early morning attack of John Baylor on September 12, according to the police department.

Police said Khalil Taylor and a 17-year-old juvenile, allegedly attacked Baylor as he walked along Grant Avenue in Sunnyside.

Interviews conducted by Morgantown detectives following the incident revealed that the motivation behind the crime was personal in nature, rather than a random act of violence, according to the police department.

Police said the juvenile was remanded to state custody pending hearing and warrants have been issued for Taylor for malicious wounding and conspiracy.
