Surveillance video little help in Rutland assault

RUTLAND, Vt. -

A recent assault on young teen in Rutland was caught on camera, but police say the video has not made a big difference in the case.

On Sept. 11, police say a 14-year-old boy was assaulted on Seabury Street behind the Rutland Intermediate School. The victim described the attacker as a white man in his 30s. After the incident went viral on social media, many people posted questions about a security camera mounted to the school that caught the attack on camera. Police say simply being able to copy the video off the school system took several days, and the picture quality isn't great.

"The video was shot from a distance away-- I would estimate it to be 150 to 200 yards, or more. And it's very difficult to make out individuals on the video," Rutland City Police Chief James Baker said.

Baker says the investigation is ongoing, and police are continuing to question a number of potential suspects.
