Student injured in attack by older teen-agers

A ninth-grade student at Centennial High School received minor injuries when he was attacked in Ellicott City Friday morning by a group of older teen-agers who stole his $125 jacket, county police said.

The unidentified student was taken to Howard County General Hospital for treatment of minor facial injuries, police said.

The student was injured while walking home with a group of Centennial High students at about 11 a.m. Friday in the 4200 block of Centennial Lane.

A tan or beige vehicle pulled next to them, and about seven people, aged 16 to 18, got out and approached the Centennial High group, police said.

After a brief conversation, one of the older youths punched the ninth-grader, police said. When the victim fell, the attackers continued punching him and began kicking him. They also stole his $125 blue Marlins starter jacket.

The victim's brother, also a ninth grader at Centennial High, tried to help but was also attacked, police said.

The attackers fled in their vehicle, possibly a Buick Skylark.
