An unidentified 16-year-old boy has been charged with killing Martin Cobb, who tried to prevent rape of his big sister. The two were playing on Richmond railroad tracks when attacker grabbed 12-year-old girl.

A teenage boy has been charged with murder and strangulation following a vicious attack that left an 8-year-old boy dead and his 12-year-old sister injured.

The suspect was not identified because of his age, police in Richmond, Va., announced Saturday.

The teenager is being “medically evaluated” cops said, but didn’t elaborate.

Investigators initially were searching for a white male suspect with scraggly facial hair, based on information from the girl, who was attacked Thursday as she played with her little brother along railroad tracks behind their home.

But police later learned the girl had been threatened and intimidated into giving a false description. The attacker was actually a teenage black male, investigators learned.

Martin “Marty” Cobb tried to protect his sister during the brutal assault, but was beaten and hit in the head with a brick, relatives said.
