A 9-year-old boy was killed near his Virginia home after he tried to fight off a teenager as he sexually assaulted the child’s 11-year-old sister, police said.

The little boy and his sister were playing near some railroad tracks in the backyard of their Brandon Road home in Richmond when a teenaged boy suddenly attacked the girl about 6:30 p.m. Thursday, WRIC-TV reported.

“From what I understand, the sister was raped and (the brother) tried to save her,” the children’s aunt, Jacqueline Smith, told the news station.

“And he was hit in the head with a brick and killed.”

    Hopefully they will not let the assailant off with mere mental issues. Charge him appropriately for the crimes.
