Masked man attacks, beats 13-year-old boy for cigarettes




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HAMILTON — Police are looking for a masked cigarette bandit who beat a youth for his Marlboro cigarettes.

        Witnesses told police they saw a suspect, who was wearing a mask or a rag on his face, beat and kick a 13-year-old boy around 11:30 p.m. Monday. An unknown object was used in the beating, which caused injuries to the boy's face and neck.

        As of Wednesday, no one had been arrested.

        Police are investigating to determine whether charges should be filed against the youth, since he is too young to possess cigarettes except in certain instances, said Officer Don Taylor, Hamilton police spokesman.
