Fordson Student Reportedly Assaulted Outside of School
The following information was supplied by the Dearborn Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
A ninth grade Fordson student was reportedly injured in a fight with another student outside of the school on Wednesday.
According to Dearborn police reports, officers responded to an urgent care center at 4700 Schaefer on reports that a Fordson High School student had been physically assaulted by another teen.
A Fordson freshman told police that he was leaving an after-school program at around 5:50 p.m. when he observed several other teens outside of the school. One of the teens—whom he had a bad history with—began laughing at him.
He told police that he asked the boy, also a freshman, what he was laughing at, and the boy punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground. The boy then reportedly kicked him in the head “at least 10 times” while wearing football cleats.
When the assaulted teen’s mother came to pick him up from school shortly after, she took him to urgent care.
Police observed that he had a bloodied lip and a gash on the right side of his head that required stitches.
Police did not indicate whether the suspect was contacted regarding the altercation.
