A 13-year-old school kid from Maryland faces possible assault charges for daring to kiss a 14-year-old girl without her permission last week.
Baltimore Police say the boy will face second-degree assault charges.
They add that no one was injured and that suspension or expulsion actions will be handled by the school.
Locals interviewed by FOX Baltimore said that they weren’t sure if the act merited an assault charge.
One woman said, “I don’t know if an unwanted kiss is a second-degree assault of a person.”
Another man said the school should handle the situation first without getting police involved. “And then, if the parents want to press charges,” he said, “then there’s nothing else that can be done.”
