LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida city is rallying around a young man with cerebral palsy after he was attacked.
Lakeland Police gave 20-year-old Richard Werner a new bicycle and free bus passes during a ceremony Friday. He was attacked a few weeks ago by four teenagers who tried to wrestle him off his bike. A Lakeland police officer and a Good Samaritan came to Werner's aid.
The four suspects, ranging in age from 15 to 18, have been charged with abuse of a handicapped person, battery and disorderly conduct.
