Vicious Bullying Attack Leaves 9-Year-Old Humiliated


Connor Middleton isn't sure why 3 boys, all much bigger than him, singled him out to pick on.

"Hey let's go pick on the kid with the big buck teeth," the 9-year-old said. "I think they were trying to treat me like a nerd or something."

Connor and his 8-year-old half brother, Cody, have lived in Navasota for less than a year. Every other Saturday, they visit their grandmother who lives across the street from this baseball field.

== Playtime Turns into Betrayal ==

The brothers were playing hide and seek with 3 older boys, ages ranging from 13-14 years of age. That’s when Connor said they turned on him.

"All of them were at the boy's bathroom and one of them said hey look there's something in the toilet," Connor said. "I went to go see there was nothing there and they tried to shove my face in the toilet."

"And the next thing you know, BAM! One of them actually grabbed my head and tried to put my head in the urinal," Connor said.

And it didn't stop there.

== Adults Nearby, No Help ==

"They grabbed my hands and feet and shoved me in the trash can," Connor said.

When the older boys tipped the trash can over, Connor said he tried to run away but one of the boys grabbed him.

Connor said he bit the boy who in turn kicked Connor in the groin then pulled his pants off.

"He ran off with my pants and threw them on the concession stand," Connor said.

"Right when they pulled my pants off, I tried to go get em but I was scared that everybody was going to see my underwear," Connor said. "Everybody will think I'm crazy I'm in my underwear running after this kid."

Get this. While all of this was going on, the bleachers were full of adults watching a little league game. No one came to Connor's rescue.

== Police Initially Blame Victim ==

Connor's mom Eva Alaniz got a frantic call from the boy's grandmother and rushed to the emergency room where Connor had been taken.

"He was very shaken up,” Alaniz said. "He saw me and he started crying mama, mama and Cody started crying and we sat there and we hugged each other and I told them everything was going to be OK."

At first, Connor's mom was upset with how police were handling the situation, even blaming Connor for what happened. But now she said police are taking this seriously.

"The chief of police actually showed up and assured me they were looking into it," Alaniz said.

"Nobody should go through that because they did something illegal to me which I permanently did not like," Connor said.
