Police are investigating an incident where a seven-year-old boy from Babonneau was allegedly attacked by a 15-year-old male, which caused him to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Victoria Hospital.
Reports are that older male, made what relatives describe as an “indecent proposal” to the younger male, and the latter promised that he would tell his mother.
In an effort to stop him from doing so, the older male proceeded to allegedly attack the seven-year-old, by lashing him several times to the head with the use of a wood.
Relatives of the young male are upset with the situation and have since reported it to the police.
The police confirmed that the matter is being investigated.
