VPD investigating after kid beaten, robbed

Valdosta Police are trying to figure out who beat a kid on his bike and then robbed him.

It happened around 8 p.m. Sunday night at the Heron Lake apartment complex in the 1800 block of Eastwind Road. Police say three men approached the kid, told him they had a gun, and then beat him several times.

"They forced him off his bike and stole his bicycle and also his cell phone," said Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk. "It can be difficult tracking someone down like this. I believe in this case, they do have some leads that they're lookin' into. Detectives were called out and they're following up on these leads."

Call the Valdosta Police Department if you have any information.
