A boy is burned on a school bus, charges filed

Florence, AZ

Two 16-year old students at Apache Junction High School are being charged with misdemeanor assault after an incident on a school bus.  They lit a pencil eraser on fire and used it to burn a 13-year old student on his arm.

The victim is a student at Cactus Canyon Junior High School, and kept the attack a secret for weeks because he had been threatened.
