DAILYKENN.com -- An unnamed boy, age 15, was slashed from behind in a random attack in Orange City, Florida.
The teen was slashed in the face as he walked alone after shooting hoops. "Police said the cut was 6 to 8 inches long and 1 inch deep," according to clickorlando.com.
The crime was reported October 14, 2020.
“My son is a 15-year-old boy who is introverted, kind-hearted and would not bother a soul,” said the victim’s mother, who spoke out at the suspect’s first appearance Wednesday.
On Tuesday, a witness met with detectives to provide information about the case.
The witness said that on Saturday, Nathaniel Peoples, a close family friend, came to his home drunk and “off his meds” and said that he had just “gave a jit a buck fifty,” records show. A “buck fifty” is prison slang for slashing someone’s face from their mouth to their ear.
The witness said 23-year-old Peoples hid in the bushes then jumped out and attacked the boy, although Peoples thought the victim was an adult and not a teen, according to the affidavit.
