WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Wethersfield police have arrested two teenage boys for the assault of a 14-year-old at a bus stop back in September.

On September 8, Wethersfield police responded to Maple Street for a report of a physical assault on a young teenager while he was waiting at a bus stop. Once at the scene, the victim told police that he was standing at the bus stop when a car pulled up alongside him, and the car’s passenger stepped outside.
