BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police say a group of boys have been arrested after stealing a car and going to a Harford County high school where they got into a fight with a student.
The altercation was even caught on video.
The Harford County Sheriff’s Office says a 14-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy stole a vehicle in the 1900 block of Eloise Lane in Edgewood around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The boys then went to Edgewood Middle School where police say they picked up two 14-year-old boys and continued to Joppatowne High School.
Authorities say they went into the school’s cafeteria where they were involved in a fight with a male student. The victim was taken to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for treatment.
The mother of the 18-year-old who was seen being attacked in the video said the suspects don’t attend the school.
“My son was taken to the hospital he did get injured he almost lost his eye,” the woman said.
She said he’s been released from the hospital and is recovering.
“These kids got inside the school without nobody knowing it. So, that goes to show me that anybody get through this school and hurt these kids. Very unacceptable,” the mother added.
In a message, the principal of the school said the teen suspects got in by using a door another student at the school was using as an exit.
“Anytime that unauthorized individuals are able to make it into a school, it’s concerning, but we do learn through incidents that occur and we try to make the events better. We learn from each event that occurs,” Capt. Mike Crabbs of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office said.
The school resource officer ended up busting one of the teen suspects after recognizing he didn’t belong at the school.
No weapons were involved in the incident. The video of the fight has since been taken off YouTube.
The suspects have been charged with violations such as trespassing, disrupting school activities and assault.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Southern Precinct at 410-612-1717.
