RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) A teenage male is being medically evaluated as part of a homicide investigation is in its early stages. Its after an alleged assault on two children that left one dead, in South Richmond, near the 200 block of Brandon Road.
Police have warrants for the suspects arrest who is being described as teenage black male.
Richmond Police on scene confirmed that two juveniles, under the age of 13 were assaulted, one who succumbed to his injuries. The other has been taken to the hospital.
The aunt of the juveniles told CBS 6 Reporter Jon Burkett that Thursday afternoon the two children, a brother and sister, were playing on the railroad tracks.
The aunt told CBS 6 that the children came across a man who attempted to rape the 12-year-old girl.
Her brother, age eight, attempted to intervene, the aunt said (original ages told to CBS 6 were 9 and 11, but family corrected their statement).
The boy was beaten to death attempting to save his sister, the aunt told CBS 6.
The original suspect description given was limited to a white male with scraggly hair. But during the course of the police investigation, that description changed to a teenage black male.
Police said the surviving victim was threatened and intimidated by the suspect into initially giving inaccurate information. The case remains under investigation and police have not yet spoken publicly about the circumstances that led to the the childs death.

Sounds like the DC Snipers.
Ruhroh ! Someone didn't read the memo !
Lovely. Gotta be politically correct to the point that a murderer gets a pass.
political correctness gone wild.
Was the girl seriously hurt? Because the changing story makes me suspicious of her.
At least this got out. Amazing that it did...
Maybe it’s my imagination but this seems to be wayy worse than it used to be.
I’m lucky to live in Portland and we don’t have the big problems other areas do...but I have to wonder how long until it happens here. Decent people are no longer safe.
Everybody involved, including the poor little boy who was killed, appears to have been black. The killer tried to rape the boy’s sister, killed the little boy, and then told the girl to lie or he’d kill her too.
Black on black crime...that means the media doesn’t care. I guess it’s more fun to be beaten to death by somebody of your own race.
Damn, that poor boy.
black on black apparently. Two good and one bad. The blacks ought to be marching about all the violence committed by their own.
Warrrant? Does this mean they know who he is? Or do they just have a warrant out for a black teen?
The link mentions only a “brutal rape attempt” but it does say the suspect is in medical custody pending arrest.
Prayers up for the friends and relatives of that wonderful and brave little boy.
I believe that he is just fine... but how incredibly sad his loss must be to his sister and parents... may God be with them in this difficult time.
Biggest threat to black people.....other blacks.
What an awful, awful thing... I read that and at the end of the article beyond any other thoughts what I imagined was the childlike innocence of a little boy that liked to collect keys... My prayers go out to the family.
Ummmm, the piece of shit attempted to rape her - then killed her bother in front of her, then threatened to kill her if she talked... and YOU doubt her? You doubt the 12 year old who watched her bother be murdered? Are you nuts?
Being a nOOb, I didn’t want to say what you said so eloquently heartwood!
(I heard that you have to walk lightly when you’re new here) 8(
I HATE making these nOOb mistakes!
Nice to have you here...
Thank You! 8)
In other news Al Sharpton’s private jet made a U turn in mid air.
Another five years and you can look back on these days and laugh d:^)
That would bust up the pity party.
Trauma? Could it be possible that she doesn’t remember accurately because she was being threatened?
Prayers for their parents.
......a little 8 year old boy defending his sister and the sob kills him...............good grief!......literally makes me ill!
I wonder if this courageous young man who laid down his life for the honor, dignity and life of his sister will get the admiration and reverence that was rendered to Trayvon?
This is a tragedy. I hope the scum receives what he deserves.
What an amazing little brother. Prayers for the family their heart ache is beyond comprehension
A little boy is dead beaten to death......this is NOT even in the same category. Where is your humanity???
Ummmm hate to tell you but the demographics of Richmond are way different than Portalnd
Now he has the keys to the Kingdom
Nah you don’t have to walk that lightly. You do need a thick skin. The best thing is that some of the folks will let you know if you are getting way out of line. As long as you pay attention to the hints you will be good to go.
Yes, absolutely. Well said. The focus of this story should be on that brave boy. Those interested on promoting some sort of all-blacks-are-violent agenda should look elsewhere this time.
This is NOT one to mock or make fun of. My Lord have we gotten to the point where we are unable to have any empathy for the family of the dead????
Yes..I’ve actually been to Richmond and was impressed with the beauty of the buildings and the history. And of course, a very different world from Portland.
For whatever reason we don’t seem to have a ton of racial problems here. In fact, the head of our dept at the well known Fortune 500 company where I work, is a black guy. My boss is a black guy. Their color does not matter to me.
Reminds me of the events in the book Bonfire of the Vanities. Pretty well describes Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
If they have a suspect in custody, a reasonable suspect, and she did receive serious injuries, then her account is most likely true.
There are psychopaths who kill people, even family members, injure themselves, and make up a story about an attacker. Charles Stuart and the Lululemon killer come to mind.
I’m not mocking the death. I cannot imagine the misery the family must be enduring. My comment was about the media and it’s usual ‘activists.’
I doubt premeditation by a 12 year old rape victim - a victim who watched her brother murdered. The only motive I see in this case is the motive of a terrified child not wanting to be murdered at the hands of her rapist if she ‘snitched’.
What rational motive could there be for a 12 year old other than what I’ve said? Large sums of money left by her wealthy eight year old brother perhaps?
Either she was terrorized into giving a false initial statement, as now seems to be the case, or she killed her brother herself and made up a story about a rape. I don’t think the latter is the true any more but I did wonder.
And no, 12 y.o.s who kill don’t do it to inherit. They seldom have a rational motive, but they do have motives. They do it out of rage, impulse, the desire to silence the victim, psychopathy.
If they attack a stranger, you can throw in robbery and peer pressure.
There are a number of things I could say to your response. Apparently you must be under the age of about 40 because I cannot fathom how little you know of history.
Portland is one of the whitest cities in the US It is nothing like Richmond Virginia where not only are the demographics different but the history is vastly different.
The very fact that you would use the old ‘one of my best friends is...’ argument says you just don’t understand. There exists in this country (whether rightly or wrongly) a racial animus that O has stoked and fed. Portland Oregon is full of yuppified folks who wouldn’t recognize a problem if it hit them in the face. The drug use, anarchist action committees, and gang related crimes apparently end up in the trash can. The last time I was in Portland ( a little less than a year ago) it seemed more Like Portlandia than anything else.
Richmond Virginia on the other hand is over 50% African American. The income distribution follows unfortunately the patterns that exist in Washington DC. So you have race and economics playing into the situation.
bleeech... your comment makes no sense at tall
I don’t totally understand your race problems in Richmond because I’ve never lived in such a place and I choose not to. Of course Portland is different. However I am fully aware of the racial problems that those such as Sharpton, Obama, Jackson have made careers of - you’d have to be brain dead not to know this.
You say nasty things about Portland but despite it’s liberalism I am happy here and live in a neighborhood where I feel SAFE. I do not want to get hit in the face with race problems - and we have some but they are largely avoidable. You have a lot of opinions about Portland - you were here once within the last year, I’ve spent most of my life here. Funny, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with living in a place you like and feel safe. sigh...
You cannot read or reason.
I never blamed the girl for being raped.
I was initially suspicious of her story because it had changed. I considered the possibility she had attacked her brother and made up the story. That is actually something the investigators are supposed to do.
Look them up.
