A young boy was assaulted and robbed while he was on his way to a bus stop Monday in Newton, WHDH reported.
The 12-year-old boy was reportedly on his way to the bus stop on Lexington Street around 9 a.m. when a man got off an MBTA bus and approached him.
“The boy told police that the man approached him from behind and then confronted him, demanding his cellphone. Then the child was able to see that the man had a large knife in his hand,” Fox29 reported.
After a brief struggle, the boy was knocked to the ground, and the suspect made off with his cellphone.
With the help of other children, the young boy went to school where he reported the incident. He was taken to Boston Children's Hospital.
According to Fox 29, the stolen phone was located in Waltham.
The suspect is described as a tan white male with white facial hair wearing a blue hoodie.
