NEWARK - Newark police officials say three arrests have been made in connection to the violent crime spree that left five people robbed and beaten following a concert in Newark last weekend.
Police say three juveniles, whose names will not be released because of their age, were part of a band of 10 or 15 teens that assaulted and robbed three separate groups of victims.
The wave of violence broke out as nearly 20,000 people left Newark's Prudential Center after Saturday's Red Hot Chili Peppers show.
Three teenagers and two adults were targeted, including a 23-year-old Pennsylvania man, who suffered a fractured eye socket.
City officials say more than 20 officers were on duty for Saturday's concert.
