WEST CARROLLTON — UPDATE @ 1:45 p.m.
A 15-year-old West Carrollton High School student who allegedly assaulted a classmate accused the assault victim of telling a female acquaintance to kill herself, according to a police report.
The 15-year-old victim denied the allegation while the victim filed the police report, according to the report. The victim’s mother also denied the allegation when reached by this new organization.
The victim and his mother went to the West Carrollton Police Department after the victim received treatment at Dayton Children’s Hospital on Feb. 5. The victim suffered a concussion and a jaw injury in the incident, the report said.
The victim also said the suspect reached out to him on Snapchat after the alleged assault, asking him not to pursue criminal charges, but the victim and his family did not have screenshots of the messages, the report said.
After completing the police report, officers went to the suspect’s home, arrested him and took him in for questioning.
“(The suspect) told me that (the victim) told his friend to kill herself, which upset him,” West Carrollton officers logged in the report. “(The suspect) said that he has been going back and forth with (the victim) via text messages about it.”
The suspect told police he has an anger problem, and it caused him to “black out” and attack the victim, according to the report.
