Cops: 13-year-old student beaten on school bus | News
Gulfport, Florida-- At 51st street and 20th Ave south- that's where a brutal beating took place on board a school bus.
According to Gulfport police, the driver of school bus route 702 called for help when three 15-year-old male students beat up a 13-year-old.
The bus had left Lealman Intermediate School where the victim was allegedly approached by one of the 15-year-olds in the bathroom, and asked if he wanted to buy drugs.
Reports say the victim turned down the offer, and told school officials- only to later board the same bus as the boy from the bathroom, and two others.
What happened next lead to the arrest of the three teens.
Officials say while on the bus the 15-year-olds, Lloyd Khemradj, Julian McKnight and Joshua Reddin, punched and kicked the victim dozens of times and fractured his arm before they bolted out the rear emergency door.
10 News spoke with the parents of suspect Joshua Reddin, but they declined to discuss what happened, and asked us to leave.
