Farmington Township, PA – A 15-year-old boy who was afraid of getting arrested, even though he was the victim of a crime, hid in the trunk of a car with his two dogs to avoid police.

State Police in Marienville had gotten a call about a domestic disturbance on Nov. 29 at a home along Allio Drive in Farmington Township, Clarion County.

Police searched for the victim, a 15-year-old boy from Leeper, for about an hour and a half until they finally found him hiding in the trunk of an old vehicle on the property, along with his two dogs.
