NEW YORK (AP) — A 7-year-old New York City boy's family has filed a $250 million claim against police and the city after saying he was handcuffed and falsely accused of stealing $5 from another student after school.
His mother, Frances Mendez, tells the New York Post Wilson Reyes was "interrogated" for 10 hours on Dec. 4.
Family attorney Jack Yankowitz filed the claim. He says Wilson was handcuffed and held in a room at P.S. X114 in the Bronx for four hours, then taken to a precinct house. He allegedly was held there for six hours and charged with robbery.
The Post says the city dropped the charge Dec. 26. A spokesman declined to comment.
School officials say it occurred off school grounds. Police had no immediate comment.
