"He goes in to assist his stepfather," [Iron County Sheriff Mark] Gower said. "The juvenile delivers several blows to the suspect in the back. He (the assailant) is bleeding quite heavily, and the fight continues even after that."
Eventaully the wounded goblin decided to leave. He was found about 150 feet from the home with no pulse and not breathing.

The goblin had recently been fired by the homeowner who owns a construction company.
