Teen charged with weekend assault on other teen

County Police have arrested at 16-year-old boy in connection with a weekend assault on another teen.

Police say the suspect attacked a 17-year-old acquaintance on Freedom Trail around 4:10 Sunday morning and demanded cash.

The victim wouldn't give the suspect money, so the suspect punched the victim in the face and tried to take his belongings, but left empty-handed.

Officers picked the suspect up at his house, also on Freedom Trail.

He's in the County Detention Center on attempted robbery and offensive touching counts, and is under orders to stay away from the victim.
