A male juvenile is being charged with assault 4th after an altercation with female juvenile yesterday afternoon in Fort Thomas.
Assault in the fourth degree is defined as intentionally or wantonly causing physical injury to another person.
The rumor mill began to churn this afternoon, when it was whispered that the assailant used a knife in the attack, but according to Fort Thomas Police Lt. Rich Whitford, that isn't the case.
"We were called today about an incident yesterday after school. Our officers located the individual today and interviewed him," he said. "There were also some witnesses who are cooperating that saw the assault."
Whitford said that the victim was punched in the face and that charges will be filed.
