    A 13-year-old middle school student was assaulted and robbed while waiting for the school bus in Wethersfield Monday morning.

    The boy was at a bus stop at the corner of Yale Street and Amherst Street around 7:30 a.m. when two cars pulled up alongside him and demanded his belongings, according to police.

    When the boy refused to hand over his stuff, he told police two young men got out of one of the cars, pushed him to the ground, and began punching and kicking him.

    They grabbed his belongings and took off on Yale Street, police said.

    The victim told police there were a total of seven people involved and all were believed to be males, roughly 16 years old. The two cars they were driving were described as a silver or white Honda CRV and a smaller blue Honda.

    The teen suffered minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital.

    Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call Officer Kevin Lawless at (860) 721-2901.
