VICTORVILLE, Ca. – The Victorville community is outraged after learning that an 11-year-old boy was assaulted by an unknown male on Monday while walking home from school.
The male subject was only described as a slender, white man, who was around 20-30 years old. The parents of the boy reported the Mesa Linda Middle School boy missing after he did not arrive home after school. His parents went looking for him in the area and through walking paths, where the boy normally walked him. They then called the Sheriff’s Department and they began searching for the child in a helicopter and on the ground. The child was found a short time later, but did not have his pants, shirt, or his shoes on. “After investigating and hospital visits, we are glad to say no sexual assault,” his father said on an Neighborhood App. “He was assaulted, hit, and told to remove his clothing.”
Glad to be reunited with his parents and shocked with the ordeal, the boy was not able to provide a more detailed description of the suspect. “This terrified our family and could have been much worse. Our son is safe and he will no longer be walking home,” the victim’s father added.
The Victorville Police Department’s investigation into the incident is on-going. If you have any information about this investigation we ask that you contact Detective M. Placencia at the Victorville Police Department, (760) 241-2911.
