LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A fight at apartments on Robert E. Cox Road, 10 miles south of London, resulted in a juvenile being taken into custody on Saturday afternoon.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office reports that Deputy Milton Storm responded to a call around 2 p.m. regarding a fight at the apartments.

When Storm came up on the scene, a male subject fled the scene on foot. After a short foot chase, a belligerent 17-year-old male was taken into custody. Witnesses at the scene identified him as being the male involved in the fight. The teen boy had cuts on his face and had been struck with a lamp.

The teenager also had a pickup order against him, and was taken into custody for fourth-degree assault.
