Report: Runaway boy spits into Warren cop's face
Warren Police say they'll talk to the prosecutor about a runaway boy who allegedly spit into the face of an officer.
Police say they spotted a boy who looked to be about 12-years-old in a parking lot off West Market Street at 1 o'clock in the morning on Thursday.
Officers say as they approached, the boy ran away, yelling at them to stay away.
The boy was chased on foot along a trail near some railroad tracks, calling out, asking him for his name.
When police caught up with the boy and placed him in handcuffs, he told them he has no name or no home.
They took him to the Juvenile Justice Center hoping to identify the boy, where police say he spit into the face of officer Joseph Wilson.
Once at police headquarters, the boy gave police his parent's names and showed them where he lived.
Officers took him home, where the boy's father said he didn't know his son ran away, telling police that the boy has been having problems and he didn't know where to get help for him.
Police left the boy with his parents, saying they'll talk to a prosecutor about possible charges.
