Arson investigationOn Wednesday, February 29, 2012, at approximately 2:07 p.m., Long Beach Police responded to the area of 10th Street and Ximeno regarding a fight, which resulted in the hospitalization of a 15-year-old male subject.

When officers arrived, they discovered the 15-year-old male victim down on the ground that had been assaulted. He was immediately transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim, a student at Wilson High School, was confronted by a group of male subjects and words were exchanged. The group then proceeded to assault the victim before fleeing on foot. The victim had not been involved in an on-campus incident earlier in the day.
