(Lake Barrington, IL) A young boy was battered on his way to school in what officials have called an unprovoked attack. The 12-year-old was walking to his bus stop Tuesday morning in Cuba Township, just east of the McHenry County border, when he was approached by a male, who struck him in the face, and fled into a nearby wooded area. The suspect  was described as a Hispanic male in his late 20’s, last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and black athletic shoes. The victim did not suffer any serious injuries. The investigation into the incident is ongoing by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
