Indictment brought in attack on boy, 13
A Clifton man was indicted Thursday on charges of adbducting a 13-year-old boy.
Robert Scott Lane, 26, faces up to 26 years in prison if he is convicted of kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and abduction. Prosecutors say he was attacking the child on March 15 when two University of Cincinnati students heard the boy scream for help.
Police say the students used a broomstick, a bottle and other makeshift weapons to subdue Mr. Lane.
Prosecutors say Mr. Lane grabbed the boy by his book bag and dragged him into a building. They say he then grabbed the child in the groin area and began punching him.
