Caption/Description

Cincinnati police found the nine-year-old boy who'd beaten a 53-year-old Jack Young in Washington Park minutes after arriving on the scene. The boy at first denied that he'd hit the man. Later, while being charged with juvenile assault, the boy began to weep. Photographer shot a picture of the boy striking the man, then immediately ran to the man's aid.
