Six Black River Falls Middle School boys could face battery charges after attacking victims in the testicles.
Police were called to the middle school Friday after two separate incidents of seventh-grade boys slapping and assaulting sixth-grade boys in the testicles. In one incident a sixth-grade boy was kicked in the testicles so hard he was “rolling around” on the floor in “severe pain,” according to the BRF Police Department report.
Commonly referred to as “sack tapping,” the form of bullying often is practiced by youth where a boy or girl attacks a victim’s testicles.
Six boys were involved in the incidents and will be referred to the DA’s office and human services, according to the report. All six boys were spoken to about their conduct and bullying.
