Prince Rupert RCMP are seeking three boys in grades 7 or 8, believed to be involved in an assault.
On Monday, January 25, at around 3:50pm, a young boy was walking home from school when he was assaulted on the pathway between 6th and 7th Ave West in the 400 to 500 block.
Police say they take the unprovoked attack on a child very seriously, even if by other children.
Sgt. Dave Uppal says they’re asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects.
If anyone has information, please contact the Prince Rupert RCMP.
