Boys Can Be Victims, Too

Just because you’re a guy doesn’t mean you can’t be a victim of teen dating abuse. Statistically, girls are more likely to be the victims of teen dating abuse, but boys can be victims, too. In fact, in one study conducted in 2008, 13% of Latino 7th grade boys reported being physically abused by their partner.1 About one in ten high school students, 9.8 percent, reported being hit, slapped, punched or in some way physically abused by a partner.2 What these facts point out is that teen dating abuse crosses all genders, races, sexual orientations and economic factors.

DEERFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A 17-year-old girl has been shot to death outside a pet care shop in Deerfield by her former boyfriend, who later killed himself.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found Amanda Borsos, of Morrow, with a gunshot wound just after 4 p.m. Wednesday in a dog exercise area. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. She would have been a junior at Little Miami High School.
