OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A family was angered after they say four high schoolers jumped their son and robbed him. This happened at 83rd and Mastin in Overland Park.

When Marcus Howard came home and didn't find his son, he knew something was wrong, so he went looking for Daunte.

“When I was done looking for him, he was stumbling up, shocked as can be, terrified,” said Howard.

Daunte didn't have any shoes on. Howard says four boys jumped his son and stole his cell phone, school-issued laptop, and $200 pair of shoes.

“They didn’t beat him besides strong-arming him, pushing him down and has his arms behind his back,” said Howard.

His 13-year-old comes home late on days when he has math tutoring. Daunte was just getting off the school bus at 83rd and Mastin when he says Daunte was attacked.

“Probably saw him as an easy target, walking by himself, new shoes,” he said.

Howard notified his son's school and surrounding schools to make sure students are on alert while on the school bus. The Shawnee Mission School District says they are aware of what happened and are working closely with Overland Park police.
