Burroughs High student assaulted
A 17-year-old John Burroughs High School senior was punched several times Wednesday afternoon by three unknown men, police said.
The alleged victim, whose name has not been released because of his age, was walking east on Verdugo near Frederic Street when three “young adults jumped out of a car and punched him in the head and face several times,” Burbank Sgt. Travis Irving said.
The incident was not gang-related and the student said he did not know the identity of his attackers, he said.
He received minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
