Teenager Assaulted in Park; Arrest Made
The beating of a 16-year-old boy is at least the second time in the last two months a teenager has been assaulted in an Oak Creek park.
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after a teenager was assaulted Wednesday night in an Oak Creek park.
The victim told police several unknown boys came out of the woods about 6 p.m. at a park near 7600 S. Clement Ave. and punched and kicked him, according to a police report.
The boy sustained a bruised nose and several small cuts on the inside of his mouth, police said.
The assault also caused him to drop his cell phone. A police canine was brought in to help search for the phone, but it could not be located, according to the report.
Police determined one of the offenders was a 15-year-old Oak Creek boy who had an open warrant with the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office. Officers arrested him later that night and took him to the children's detention center.
The 16-year-old is at least the second teenager assaulted in an Oak Creek park in the last two months.
