SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say a 13-year-old boy was punched, kicked and stomped by a trio of former classmates that the teen had switched schools to avoid.

Police say they have arrested two teens in the attack late Wednesday afternoon and are looking for a third.

In a statement, police say they found the victim with head bruises and scratches on his legs. Seattle Fire Department medics treated him at the scene.

Police say the victim reports he looked across the street as he stepped off a Metro bus and saw the trio. He had attended a Seattle middle school with them last year and says he transferred to get away from their bullying. The boy told officers he immediately tried to reboard the bus but the driver reportedly refused to let him on board.

KING-TV reports that Metro has responded with a statement, saying, “This was a terrible incident and Metro will be working with Seattle police so we can clearly understand the circumstances.”

Police say the two arrested boys were booked into a detention center for investigation of assault.

Detectives are investigating.
