A relative of one of the boys who was with Demarco Gibbs when he was beaten is calling on the mothers of the other children to take them to the police.

Demarco, ten, was detained in the Intensive Care Unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on June 14 after being struck in  the head with pieces of wood. 

It was reported that four of his peers were involved. 

His mother, Tricia Gibbs, has expressed disappointment that the children who injured her son had not come forward or been arrested by the police.

However, yesterday, the grandmother of a 12-year-old  boy said her daughter took him  to the police station a day after the incident. (MB)
