Man, 20, beats up boy, 13, over cat's death

A 13 year-old boy told police his 20 year-old neighbor beat him up Sunday after accusing him of killing his cat six years ago.

A little after 5 p.m., police arrived at the 800 block of Aiken Plaza and found the teenager with a swollen lower lip, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

The boy told deputies he was playing basketball when his neighbor approached him and accused him of killing his cat six years ago. The man hit the teen in his face and body and then took off running east toward Aiken Street, the teen told authorities.

The boy’s 71-year-old grandmother said she wanted to prosecute if the neighbor was found, the report said.
