    Watertown police have arrested three suspects in an unprovoked attack in a 7-Eleven parking lot in Oakville in March.

    Three males sustained injuries during the attack in the 7-Eleven parking lot at 118 Davis Street on March 30, police said. Two of the three victims sustained broken jaws and one of them was transferred to Hartford Hospital so his fractured jaw could be repaired.

    Police investigated, determined that four people were involved and have arrested two men and a juvenile. Police said more arrests are expected and police are seeking another suspect.

    Police arrested Thomas VanDresar, of Oakville, on July 31. He was charged with second-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace, police said. Bond was set at $50,000 and VanDresar was arraigned in court in Waterbury on Aug. 1.

    Francis DiMaria, also of Oakville, was arrested today. He was also charged with second-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace. Bond for DiMaria was also set at $50,000 and he posted it, police said.

    Police have not released the juvenile’s name because of his age.
