Harford Crime Solvers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of two boys sought in the assault and robbery of a 12-year-old boy going home from an Edgewood High School football game Nov. 8.

The assailants were hiding in bushes and grabbed the victim as he was walking on Willoughby Beach Road, the non-profit group said.

The boy reported to police he was struck in the face, knocked to the ground and kicked in his side. One of the suspects then took an undetermined amount of money from the victim's pocket.

One suspect is described as a black male, about 5 feet 6 and 145 pounds, Crime Solvers said. The other suspect is a black male, 5-7 and about 125 pounds.

Both suspects are believed to be about 13 or 14 years old.
