CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The mother of a 13-year-old boy says he and an eight-year-old were forced to fight naked by a group of older teenagers.

Tasiha Burris says the suspects emailed a photo of her son around.  She got wind of it when her sister asked her about it.

"I've been talking to him, telling him everything will be alright," said Burris.

Burris says the boys had to fight to get their clothes back.  The incident happened on Luther Street, according to a report filed with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Kim Hill, is the mother of the eight-year-old boy, and says the children had gone to play video games at the home of an older teen.

"Come to find out it was more than a game," she said. Hill said the boys were held down crying and stripped of their clothing.

As of Wednesday morning, police had not made any arrests. Officers say they're not sure how the case will proceed.
