Teenager attacked on way to school

A teenager's walk to school turned violent, after he was confronted by a man, demanding money.

The Scott County teen was walking along Kellridge Drive on the way to school, when a hispanic man approached him.

A fight ensued, because the suspect was trying to take the victim's backpack.

The attempted attacker ran off.

The student was able to get away with minor injuries.

Authorities do say they think this was an isolated incident.

There will be increased patrols around the school for the next couple of days.
