PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A 10-year-old boy says he beat and robbed a Vietnamese immigrant inside her Philadelphia home because he didn't like the way she looked at him.
The boy made an apology Tuesday during a Family Court hearing. Fifty-year-old victim Minh Tran accepted the apology through an interpreter.
Police say the boy, his 7-year-old brother and a third assailant entered Tran's home on Aug. 6 and attacked her with rocks and sticks. The boy told Family Court Administrative Judge Kevin Dougherty he attacked Tran because he didn't like her.
The Philadelphia Daily News (http://bit.ly/PFeksf ) reports disposition of the case was pushed back to Oct. 5. The boy could end up in juvenile detention or be put on probation.
