Durham Boy to Testify Against Others

Posted September 27, 1996 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A 14-year-old boy has agreed to testify against three other youths accused of a brutal attack on an 11-year-old.

In exchange, the 14-year-old will receive probation as punishment for his part in the alleged attack.

The four Durham teens who are accused reportedly punched, beat, kicked and sexually assaulted the 11-year-old for more than an hour. Some said one of the attackers called friends on the phone to allow them to hear the victim scream.

The dispute apparently started with a fight over a girl.
