An 18-year-old male, Steven Nicholas Young, and a 15-year-old male, both of White County, face charges after they allegedly attacked another 15-year-old male, causing serious injuries to the juvenile victim’s eye.
According to officials with White County Sheriff Department, Young was waiting nearby when the juveniles got off the bus on Crawford Circle, at approximately 3:18 p.m., on Sept. 26.
The alleged juvenile suspect reportedly told a deputy with WCSD “he punched a kid in the face when he got off the school bus because he called him names.”
The juvenile, who was attacked, reportedly told officers “his glasses cut the top of his eye” when he got hit.
Personnel with White County Emergency Medical Services transported the injured juvenile to White County Community Hospital. He was reportedly later taken to Vanderbilt Children’s hospital, received 10 stitches, and was told his eye socket had been fractured.
Officers placed the other juvenile into custody and transported him to White County Justice Center where a juvenile petition was taken out against him for assault.
Young was arrested on Sept. 27, taken to WCJC, booked on assault on a minor, and later released after posting a $1,000 bond. He is scheduled for his first court appearance on Sept. 30.
