A group of people tried to rob middle school students at a bus stop in Gary.
It happened at 24th and Gerry Street.
A 14-year-old says a grown woman punched her in the face while she was waiting for the school bus this morning.
A group of Lake Ridge Middle School students were near the intersection after 7 a.m. when they say two men and two women got out of a black car and attacked.
“They came up to us asking us for our lunch money and asked for money and electronics. They said if we don’t listen to them someone is going to get hurt,” the 14-year-old said.
