HAVERFORD TWP., Pennsylvania (WPVI) — The Haverford Township Police Department in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, has made an arrest in connection with a series of violent incidents.
No further information about the suspect has been released at this time.
Action News reported the attacks in the township earlier this week, with some caught on video.
The videos appear to show at least two teenagers who were attacked last weekend.
One of the incidents took place between the Skatium and the Wawa on Darby Road in Havertown.
At the time of our report, police said at least two victims and several suspects had been identified. They said all of the teenagers involved may not be local.
Action News spoke to Joe Walker, who said his son was assaulted on Sunday night.
“It hurts me because 10-on-1 is a bad situation,” Walker said.
Walker said his son wasn’t seriously hurt, but he’s been thinking about the what-ifs.
“The mental anguish I’m going through right now is obvious, but it could have been a lot worse,” Walker said.
Police said they are working closely with Haverford Township School District officers to ensure the safety of all the children.
The department is stepping up patrols, saying, “This type of action by unruly youth will not be tolerated.”
“Parents/guardians should communicate with their children and know where they are and what they are doing,” police said in a social media post.
Anyone with information about the attacks should contact Haverford Township Police at 610-853-1298 x1230 or the Anonymous Tipline at 610-853-9213.
