“Three teenagers have been referred to Police Youth Services after a group of youths stormed an Auckland high school classroom and attacked a pupil.
A further five have been reported to Police Youth Services following the attack on Monday at Lynfield College.
One of the attackers reportedly yelled out the name of an Afghani youth gang during the attack, which was possibly sparked by comments on the social networking website Bebo.
Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty said police were called about 1pm on Monday to the attack on a student, who did not suffer any serious injuries but required medical treatment for cuts and bruises.
” Police located the group — all aged between 14 and 16 — off the school grounds,” she said.
“Three have since been referred to Police Youth Services for aggravated assault and for unlawfully being on a property, with a view to holding family group conferences. Five have been reported to Youth Services in relation to the incident.””
