Teens Held For Alleged Assault On Sex Offender

Police Young Men Went Too Far Distributing Fliers

.Some east Baltimore residents are upset after police released six young men without charges Thursday night in an incident tied to an investigation into an alleged child abduction. The family of a 9-year-old Johnston Square Elementary School student says someone abducted the boy at knifepoint last Friday morning as he walked to school.

The boy's mom ultimately found her son, possibly saving his life, but his attacker remains at large. Though detectives continue to investigate, some residents now stand accused of taking the law into their own hands. WBAL-TV 11 News reporter Barry Simms reported police officers detained six young men late Thursday night after two witnesses reported seeing some of them attack a registered sex offender.

Police said the men were distributing fliers that showed pictures of registered sex offenders in the neighborhood. "They did have fliers in their possession ... (that had pictures of) people on the sex offender registry," Baltimore City Police Officer Troy said. "No, it's not against the law to pass out the fliers, but you can't go around harassing (people)." : by WBAL ..more..
