NORTH COLLEGE HILL, Ohio - Police say that six 13- and 14-year-old boys charged with robbing and badly beating a man told officers they were bored and looking for something to do.

Pat Mahaney, 45, is back home after being hospitalized for four days with internal injuries and bleeding, cuts and bruises. Police in North College Hill say he was found covered in blood last Saturday evening.

Witnesses reported he was "jumped by six children."

Police say they arrested the sixth and final suspect Wednesday. They say the youths admitted the man had done nothing to provoke them, but they decided to attack him because they were bored.

The juvenile suspects face charges of felonious assault and aggravated rioting.
