Teen mugged by four behind Portage Road Tops

NIAGARA FALLS – A 15-year-old boy suffered a possible concussion Friday night when he was jumped by four other juveniles behind the Tops Market on Portage Road, police said.

A witness told police he believes the attackers were in an alleyway next to the store, waiting to attack or rob any passers-by. The victim, who lives nearby, was walking home about 8 p.m. when one member of the group accused him of trying to start a fight, then all four attacked him, punching him repeatedly in the head.

The victim was treated in Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center.
