A 15-year-old boy suffered bruises and abrasions all over his body after a large group of people attacked him after a basketball game in Chicago’s Douglas Park neighborhood on Wednesday night.

According to Chicago police, the boy was leaving a basketball game in the 1300 block of South Sacramento Drive at approximately 8 p.m. Wednesday when a group of between 10 and 20 males began attacking him.
