Preteens assault 10-year-old in Brooklyn Park, steal his bike

Two preteens are being sought by authorities in Anne Arundel County after they allegedly punched a 10-year-old boy and stole his bike Wednesday.

The assault and theft happened just before 12:45 p.m. on Wasena Avenue in Brooklyn Park, authorities say. The victim was pushing his bicycle down the street when the two suspects, who are likely between the ages of 10 and 12, began following him.

Police say the suspects eventually assaulted and punched him before taking his bike and fleeing into Baltimore.

The suspects were not found. An investigation continues.
