Boy beaten bloody by five peers, 300-euro reward (ANSA) - Parma, February 17 - A citizens' consumer group on Monday offered a 300-euro reward for any tips leading to the identification of five 15-year-olds who beat a sixth boy to a pulp Saturday.

The 15-year-old victim was lured to a meeting after his peers allegedly decided to punish him for greeting one of their girlfriends.

The victim was kicked and punched for several minutes without interruption at a bus stop at 4pm on Saturday in a busy street in the northern city of Parma. He was hospitalized and is being kept under observation for 30 days.

Police are investigating the incident.
