The two girls appeared to exchange something between them, and then the defendant began swinging at Baglioni’s chest. He deflected the blows, but then the girl swung at his eye.
The blow knocked him to the pavement and the girls ran down the street. The probation officer caught up with the defendant, while the other teenager was apprehended by another officer who was coming out of a gym down the street, Grimes said.
The other teen has also been charged in the case but was not indicted.
The judge took the matter under advisement and said he will rule after reviewing a recording of the Juvenile Court hearing and surveillance videos of the incident.
There is currently a pretrial hearing in the case scheduled in Lynn Juvenile Court on Sept. 6.
