I’m so sorry this happened to you. Sometimes we just need someone to hear what happened and say that it sucks and apologize on behalf of the person who wouldn’t. 

 

I hope your weekend is better. Hugs to you.

In my area he would go to uvenile court and probably get referred to a diversion program if it’s his first offense.  If it’s a violation of probation or a subsequent offense, he would likely be looking at some time in juvenile detention.  They treat crimes committed by minors very seriously where I live; it’s good and bad because for the younger kids it usually starts out as a parenting problem.

Definitely attend the court date(s) and express to the judge what you would like to see happen.  It sounds to me like the kid may need a mentor so he can model his behavior on someone other than his parents.

Oh my goodness!  That is terrible.  Perhaps this will open his parents’ eyes to his behavior.  They should at the very least allow you to file a police report and it should be up to YOU (ie the victim) to press charges.  You’re right though, as a juvenile it’s unlikely he’s going to have any ‘real’ consequences, but at least you can try to make charges stick :/

You poor thing, you must have been terrified!!  I’m so sorry that you’re having to deal with this…because I’m sure this has, no doubt, made you paranoid.  Thank God you weren’t physically hurt, though.  It truly is sad that you can’t even go running alone in your own neighborhood anymore…I wouldn’t run in mine either and I consider it to be a safe place. 🙁  Hugs to you!

@Soon2BMrsC21:  I’m so sorry you went through this 🙁 A similar event happened to me when I was out running too (not with someone so young though, and his goal wasn’t theft). I totally understand how violated you feel. I now run inside only – just not worth the stress for me!

Oh my gosh!  That is horrible.  I am sorry that happened to you.  I kind of feel bad for the kid too, in a way, because his life must be rough (I would think) for him to go about attacking people.  What a nightmare.  That is really scary and I am glad you are ok.  I would run with a dog!

Glad you’re okay.  That definitely is scary.  Honestly, some people really aren’t responsible enough to have children-you’re right its definitely a parenting problem.  The fact that the mother went to the cops to say your SO pulled a gun on her is insane! I wonder if there’s anyway to get her on filing a false police report (if she did file one).

It’s a scary thing when something like that happens.  I had two kids on bikes attack me in broad daylight with LOTS of people around and try to steal my phone (they didn’t get it, I freaked out on them just like you did and they looked stunned, then took off-and I tried running after them because obviously I can catch two kids on bikes on foot right?! hahaha).  After that I seriously debated carrying around pepper spray or something.  But its also the first time anything ever happened to me after living in NYC for 7+ years.  You start to feel better, but you definitely stay more observant of your surroundings after that.  I hope this kid gets a judge that wants to at least teach him a lesson between right and wrong.

How scary. I’m sorry that happened to you. I kinda feel bad for the kid too, I wonder what kind of situation he is living in that he feels the need to steal like that.

@Soon2BMrsC21:  My boxer is only a puppy right now, but even when he’s big, I still only walk him with my big, strapping Fiance, lol. I still have issues from what happened.

Can I ask what’s wrong with his eye? My little guy had eye surgery already 🙁 Maybe it’s a boxer thing?
