CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A 17-year-old who was given a $100,000 bond on Tuesday for a brutal Charleston assault over the weekend, was back in court on Wednesday where he was given the same bond amount for another attack.

Bond was set at $100,000 on Wednesday for Jordan Hall, of Charleston who is charged with assault and battery by mob second-degree which is the same charge he faced on Tuesday.

Hall told authorities he is a Freshman at Burke High School.

Wednesday's charge was for an assault that occurred Sunday morning near Vanderhorst and Coming Streets, where a victim was kicked and punched by a group of individuals.

The victim was treated at the scene for injuries.

Hall had been in bond court on Tuesday for another assault that happened on Saturday near Morris and Coming Streets. Authorities say Hall, acting in concert with other people, assaulted a man by striking him repeatedly and violently in the victim's face and head.

According to an affidavit, Hall and the suspects confronted the victim unprovoked and attacked him using both closed fists and forceful strikes multiple times.

Investigators say the repeated blows caused the victim to suffer facial fractures to the left side of his face, near his left eye, as well as swelling and bruising to his head and face.

Francis said police are still trying to identify additional suspects in the events that happened after a large crowd left a private event at the YWCA on Coming Street. Anyone with information should call Investigators Adam Deming or Justin Kursh at (843) 720-3913 or (843) 720-3914.

Police say Hall was also arrested earlier this month at Burke High School for petit larceny.

On April 15, a school resource officer was told by a teacher that her money was stolen out of her purse and she knew the student who may have taken it.

The teacher said after she released another student from class, Hall followed that student. The victim said she did not give permission for Hall to leave class.

The officer reported that he located Hall who became belligerent and refused to follow any of the officer's directives. According to police, the officer was given permission to complete a search of Hall due to having information that Hall had placed the missing money in his shoes.

CPD officials say before completing the search, Hall reached into his right shoe and pulled out the exact denomination of money that the teacher had described.
