4D.A. WEIGHS CHARGES IN SCHOOL ATTACK
Suspensions have been handed down against three Roxborough High School juniors who allegedly roughed up a younger classmate on Monday, and the District Attorney's Office is weighing whether to file charges against the three. They could face assault charges.
The freshman was attacked about 9:30 Monday morning inside a gym locker room, police said. As the student was buttoning his pants after gym class, the three boys ripped off his pants and underwear and dragged him on the floor, police said.
