A 14-year-old Severn boy was hit in the head during an attempted robbery Thursday morning as he stood at a school bus stop, county police said.

The boy, who was not identified by police, was not seriously injured. He was standing at the corner of Stone Castle and Citadel drives about 7:20 a.m. when another youth walked up and asked him if he wanted to buy some drugs, police said.

The boy declined, and the youth asked him if he had any money. When the boy again replied "No," the youth hit him in the back of the head and pushed him against a parked car. The mugger repeated his demand, but the boy again said he didn't have any money. The assailant made the boy kneel on the ground, then ran off toward Lake Marion Park. No money was taken, police said.
