A boy was punched and robbed of his backpack by another boy outside Marina Middle School on Monday, police said.
The 13-year-old victim was waiting in front of the school for his father to pick him up about 3:15 p.m. when another teenage boy ran up and punched him in the stomach and took his backpack. The suspect then fled.
The victim lost some cash that was in the backpack as well, police said. His injury was not life-threatening.
