PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A 10-year-old boy says he beat and robbed a Vietnamese immigrant inside her Philadelphia home because he didn't like the way she looked at him.
The boy made an apology Tuesday during a Family Court hearing. Fifty-year-old victim Minh Tran accepted the apology through an interpreter.
Police say the boy, his 7-year-old brother and a third assailant 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.
The Philadelphia Daily News reports disposition of the case was pushed back to Oct. 5. The boy could end up in juvenile detention or be put on probation.
