Police still working on boy burning case

SALTILLO – Police Chief Steve Brooks said Thursday he is still looking for two juveniles who burned a 12-year-old boy’s face in the Country Meadows neighborhood on Wednesday.
Brooks said Bradley Griffith was walking along a privacy fence at the residence he was visiting when police say he was approached by two boys who sprayed him in the face with something and then lit it on fire. The result was first- and second-degree burns to his face, neck and right arm.
The boy was taken to the North Mississippi Medical Center.
Brooks says he has been following up on reported leads, but encourages anyone with any information to contact the Saltillo Police Department.
