Warren boy beaten and robbed on bike trail

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren boy tells police, he was beaten and robbed of the clothes off his back, while walking on a bike trail in the city.

Heather Long says her 14-year-old son was walking with friends on the bike trail near High Street and Charles Avenue at around 4:30 p.m. Monday, when he was jumped by three suspects. 

She says they took off with his cell phone and nearly all of his clothes except for his socks. A police report indicates Long's son was taken to Trumbull Memorial Hospital for treatment.

"He's got a concussion and he's just got a knot on his lip and a scrape on his chin, but the physical I'm not even worried about, it's what he's going through emotionally," Long says.

She believes two of the three suspects were ages 18 and 19 and hopes they're punished.

Long stopped by a High Street home on Tuesday, to thank the family that took her son in.

Warren police say they're investigating the incident and have not yet filed charges.
