CHESTER, Pa., (CBS) – It’s a story you saw first on 3 – A vicious beating inside a local high school and a cell phone camera captured it all.
On Wednesday, police arrested five students they say were involved in the fight at Chester High School. Police say even more arrests could be coming.
The video shows a group of students not only throwing punches, but using chairs to attack and beat a 16-year-old boy inside the library of Chester High School. According to police, among the arrested students is 18-year-old Edward Stanley who appears to have recorded the fight on his cell phone and later posted the video on Facebook.
“It’s terrible. It’s something that is ungodly. It’s like the devils were in there.”
A man who identified himself as the father of the 16-year-old victim had no idea the video existed until we showed it to him. He says his son, who now has four stitches in the back of his head, moved to Chester from Delaware, just three months ago. He asked to remain anonymous.
“The kids are really taking over the school there. I think security really needs to be stepped up in there.”
