A 15 year old was arrested after he allegedly smashed another boy in the head with a wrench during a fight that broke near Maspeth High School last Wednesday, police said.
According to Capt. Christopher Manson, commanding officer of the 104th Precinct, students from another school came to Maspeth High School last Wednesday afternoon, after which a brawl ensued. After originally clashing outside the school, the teenagers moved to Elmhurst Park, located near the Long Island Expressway service road and 57th Avenue.
Police did not say what prompted the altercation.
“It got out of hand,” Manson said during a meeting with reporters at the precinct last Friday.
The student who was attacked by the teen with a wrench was not seriously injured, according to police.
Detective Thomas Bell, of the 104th Precinct, informed area civic leaders that the individuals not from Maspeth HS hailed from the Grand Street Educational Campus in Brooklyn. According to Comet Civic Association President Rose Daraio, Bell told her and others that the Grand Street teens assaulted some students at Maspeth. While one arrest has been made, police said the investigation is ongoing and Manson noted that there has been “chitter chatter on Facebook about retribution.”
