Hinton uses the device of flashback, which is when the narrator leaves the present time to tell about something that happened in the story's past. During the description itself, Hinton uses imagery to describe the state the boys found Johnny in and the way the boys felt when they found him.

The author had used flashback, backstory, and foreshadow. the author had flashbacked about the story of what had happen to Johnny, used backstory which added more detailes in the story, and foreshadowed that if anything like that happened again, he would kill that person. thoses three are the literary devices the author used to describe Johnny's mugging. You dig? :)
