Henderson, KY 2/16/21- Just after 9 PM Monday night emergency responders were called to the intersection of 3rd and Alvasia Street for the report of a male laying on the ground in the snow. Initial reports said his feet were purple, his pants were down around his knees, and his hands were tied behind his back. When responders arrived on scene they found an underage juvenile passed out in the snow.

When responders arrived on scene they did find an underage juvenile teen laying on the ground but his hands were not tied behind his back. According to Sgt.

While viewing footage from a video surveillance camera, officers observed the male juvenile stumbling and then falling in the snow while several vehicles drove by. The juvenile laid in the snow for approximately 30 mins before 911 was contacted. The officers did not observe any criminal activity in the video.
