    A 16-year-old suspect was charged with murder and strangulation in the death of an 8-year-old Virginia boy who was trying to defend his sister during a sexual assault, police said Saturday.

    Richmond police are not identifying the suspect because of his age.
    He was taken into custody after the attack was reported at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, but police waited to charge him while he was being medically evaluated.
    The victims, Martin Cobb and his 12-year-old sister, were playing on train tracks behind their family’s home when the suspect approached them, police said.

    Family told NBC affiliate WWBT that Martin was trying to defend his sister when he was fatally struck, possibly with a brick. He died at the scene, while his sister was taken to the hospital, where she was still recovering Friday.
    Police declined to detail the attack or the severity of the girl’s injuries.

    But Dionne Waugh, a spokeswoman for the Richmond police, told NBC News that outraged neighbors helped cops track down the alleged assailant.
    “The community’s response has been tremendous,†Waugh said Friday.

    Back in the good old days the 16 year old wouldn't be getting medically evaluated right now. He'd be decomposing.

    It's too bad the neighborhood didn't get to him before the cops did.

    Probably a good thing in the long run. No doubt this saved numerous future crimes and murders from being committed.
