A 10-year-old boy was attacked by a woman, for no apparent reason, as he was cycling on Acaciastraat in Haarlem on Thursday. The child had to be hospitalized to be treated for his injuries, the police said in a statement on Friday.
The boy and a friend were cycling on Acaciastraat at around 5:30 p.m. when the woman cycled in between them. She kicked the boy, causing him to fall, the police said. As the boy was lying on the ground, the woman kicked his head multiple times and then cycled away.
