Belleville police to close investigation into child assault

By Brittany Woodcock [1]

BELLEVILLE – Belleville police are no longer looking for witnesses after they say a 12-year-old boy was assaulted by three men.

The boy was riding his scooter on MacDonald Avenue and Eastwood Park Drive around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday when three males approached him, police said.

Two of the men held the victim down while the third one destroyed his scooter. They then ran away, police said.

Police have received information that was different than what was originally reported and are no longer looking to identify the suspects, they said on Thursday.

They would like to thank members of the community for their assistance in this incident.
