UPPER DARBY, Pa. — Police in a Philadelphia suburb say they have arrested six teenagers and are seeking a seventh in connection with an assault in which a 13-year-old student was kidnapped and hung from a fence post, but not seriously hurt.
Upper Darby Township Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says Monday's arrests at Upper Darby High School are related to an assault that happened Jan. 11 in an apartment complex courtyard.
Chitwood says the suspects, ages 13 to 17, kidnapped the victim on his way home from school, dragged him through the snow, stuffed him in a tree and hung him by his jacket from a 7-foot-high fence post.
Chitwood says the student did not suffer serious physical injuries. Police have not yet determined a motive.
