Report: Grad party guests assault 14-year-old
A graduation party turned into an assault Saturday afternoon, officials said today.
Rochester police were called at 4:50 p.m. to the 300 block of Fourth Avenue Northwest, where the party was being held.
According to the report, the graduate had invited some guests who didn't get along with his 14-year-old brother. The group of four allegedly assaulted the brother, punching and kicking him, said Lt. Mike Sadauskis.
The guests fled before officers arrived, but three of the suspects were arrested early today after a routine traffic stop near 18th Avenue Northwest and the frontage road of U.S. Highway 52.
Fawaz Mohamed Abukar, 18, faces possible charges of third-degree assault and third-degree riot, Sadauskis said. The other two, a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old, face identical charges. The fourth suspect, a 19-year-old, has possibly left the state, the report says.
The victim sustained serious facial injuries.
