    Police are seeking to criminally charge a 15-year-old boy they say dumped hot soup over a girl's head in the hallway of a Massachusetts high school.

    The girl's family tells The Sun of Lowell the attack caused second-degree burns.

    Police say paperwork seeking a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon was filed in court Monday. A probable cause hearing will likely be scheduled next week where a clerk magistrate will determine if charges are warranted.

    The alleged attack occurred Oct. 15 at Greater Lowell Technical High School in Tyngsborough.

    The 16-year-old girl said she had a history of conflict with the boy and he thought she was talking to him as she talked with friends.

    School officials would only say the boy received "appropriate discipline."
