Oregon boy had Swastika carved into head during attack, police say

A 16-year-old Portland boy says he was lured into a shed, where three boys beat and robbed him and one of them carved a swastika into his forehead.

The Oregonian reports the Feb. 10 assault ended when the boy was able to escape the shed and run to a nearby store.

The boy told police he was lured to the shed by a 15-year-old girl. There, police say a boy shot him with a BB gun three times.

Police say a 15-year-old boy later confessed to using a box cutter to carve a swastika into the other boy's forehead.

A similar attack was portrayed in the 2009 World War II movie, "Inglorious Basterds."

A prosecutor says the girl and two boys will be prosecuted as adults. A third boy who is 14 will be prosecuted in juvenile court.
