The Spokesman-Review
 

Two 15-year-old boys were assaulted outside the Coeur d’Alene Resort late Saturday, and Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.

The boys were asking people for money after visiting a friend at the Resort and missing the bus home when seven or eight men attacked them while yelling racial slurs, according to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department.

One boy dislocated his shoulder, and both suffered injures on their faces and heads. The attack occurred about 11:45 p.m., police said.

The assailants are described as:

A white male about 260 pounds wearing a white shirt and brown shorts and a hat.

A white male about 135 pounds with dark brown hair (short- faux style) and wearing an Abercrombie shirt and brown shorts.

A white male between 180 and 200 pounds and wearing khaki shorts and a polo shirt with no shoes.

The others involved were dressed similar in polo shirts and shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Callers do not have to use their own name to be eligible for a reward but should leave a code name or number.
