Police in Haverford, Pennsylvania investigating multiple incidents involving unruly teens

HAVERFORD, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — Haverford, Pennsylvania police say they are investigating multiple incidents involving teenagers over the weekend.

One of the incidents took place between the Skatium and the Wawa on Darby Road.

“It hurts me because 10 to 1 is a bad situation,” said Joe Walker, a parent of a teenager he says was assaulted Sunday night.

Haverford Police say they are aware of several incidents involving unruly teenagers that took place over the weekend.

According to the police, at least two victims and several suspects have been identified so far. They add that not all teenagers may be local.

Haverford Police say they are investigating videos capturing the fighting. Walker says his son wasn’t seriously hurt, but he’s pondering what ifs.

“The mental anguish I’m going through right now is obvious, but it could have been a lot worse,” Walker said.

Police work closely with school district officials to ensure the safety of all children. Walker says his son did not go to school Tuesday because he was concerned about the fallout from the fight. The teenager’s brother is also afraid.

“My other son went to school, but I got him out early because he was scared,” Walker said.

Jennifer Brennan says her teenage son is upset too.

“My, who was closely involved, was afraid he was very nervous about going back,” said Jennifer Brennan, a parent.

Police are stepping up patrols and say these types of actions by unruly youths will not be tolerated. Parents are very worried.

“I never thought that as a parent, I would have to worry about sending my kids to school,” Brennan said.

“I was asked by the administration, ‘Do you feel your child is safe at school?’ And I sort of paused and said, ‘In a perfect world, yes, but right now in an elevated situation in this microcosm, I don’t feel safe,'” Walker said.

Police are asking parents and guardians to communicate with their children and to know where they are and what they are doing.

Police say they have identified some of the suspects involved and are proceeding with arrests, and increased patrols will be in place to target these groups of disordered youth.
