HAMDEN — Police said they have charged four 13-year-olds following a violent attack of an 11-year-old boy Friday.
Hamden police said around 5:30 p.m., they responded to the area of Pine Rock Avenue and Helen Street following a report of an assault. Police said after an investigation, it was determined that an 11-year-old Hamden resident was viciously assaulted by four 13 year-olds.
“A witness observed the four juveniles “throw” the 11 year-old victim onto the sidewalk and then “stomp” on his head. As the victim was being beaten, two of the juveniles filmed the attack. During the assault, the juveniles asked the victim if he had a cell phone and his sneaker size,” said police.
