6-year-old brutally attacked after standing up for friendPosted: Updated:
A 6-year-old boy has suffered serious injuries after standing up for his friend in Washington.
Carter English says he was attacked by a group of kids in his apartment complex when he confronted them for bullying his friend.
The group beat him with rocks and sticks, and rubbed sawdust in his eyes, Carter says.
"They were just bullying him, like beating him up," says Carter. “I told them to stop, and then they did it to me."
Carter ended up with a broken arm, cuts and bruises across his face and head.
He also had to have surgery to repair a laceration in his eye, and may need surgery on his arm.
Olympia police have found the 5-year-old who they say started all of this and are planning to get social services involved.
