Police: At least 4 under arrest after Sayreville HS student assaulted
At least four men have been arrested following an assault that happened outside of Sayreville War Memorial High School Thursday afternoon.
Sayreville police say that two students at the school got into a dispute. After school was let out, adult family members and associates of one of those students came to the school and involved themselves in the dispute, according to police.
One of those men appeared to brandish a knife and assaulted the other student, according to a video obtained by the police. The student was not hurt by the knife but did sustain some injuries from the assault.
After the assault, the men ran away from the area as police were called. All were eventually found and taken into custody.
The high school was put into a shelter in place for a time, but students were safely dismissed soon after.
