PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A 10-year-old boy apologized to a Vietnamese immigrant whom he beat and robbed inside her Philadelphia home along with his 7-year-old brother and a third assailant.
The boy made his apology Tuesday during a Family Court hearing. Fifty-year-old victim Minh Tran accepted the apology through an interpreter.
Police say the child, his brother and another person entered Tran's home on Aug. 6 and attacked her with rocks and sticks. The boy told Family Court Administrative Judge Kevin Dougherty he attacked Tran because he didn't like her or the way she looked at him.
The Philadelphia Daily News (http://bit.ly/PFeksf ) reports disposition of the case was pushed back to Oct. 5. The boy could end up in juvenile detention or be put on probation.
