Bullying Incident Sends Herman Student To Hospital

A 14-year-old  W.F. Herman Academy student is in London hospital with serious but non-life-threating head-injuries after a bullying incident in east-Windsor.

Windsor Police Services report the victim and his 14-year-old cousin were walking to a nearby pizza place around 12pm Wednesday when a group of boys approached them and accused them of making derogatory comments.

According to police, the boy quickly denied saying anything to the group, but before he could finish speaking, he was struck in the head and fell to the ground — a second boy from the group then joined in. 

Investigators say the victim's cousin jumped in to break it up, but not before the boy had suffered serious injuries to his head — he was transported to Windsor Regional Hospital but was then transferred to London for further treatment.

It is unknown if anyone was taken into custody, but Major Crimes is investigating and charges could be pending in relation to the attack — the victim and his attackers are known to each other.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Windsor police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
