Late Thursday afternoon, as one of the Cleveland ISD school buses had dropped of multiple students at their designated stop off of County Road 331, near 3316, an Aggravated Assault against a juvenile student, took place.

According to witnesses, a female juvenile student was among those who exited said school bus. As the bus continued on their route, multiple persons approached the female juvenile student while in and operating two different motor vehicles.

It was at this point, these persons exited said vehicles and began to immediately assault the female juvenile student. As the victim fell to the ground, she was further assaulted, causing trauma about her head and face. The suspects then got back into said vehicles and fled the scene, leaving the victim behind, seriously injured, in the roadway.
