Dover Police Investigating Attack on School Bus
(WBOC) DOVER, Del.- Dover police say they are investigating what is being described as a “brutal assault” on a juvenile on a school bus.
The incident happened as the bus was traveling home from Central Parkway Academy in Dover, police said. They added that investigators were monitoring social media activity when they discovered an “extremely disturbing” video of the attack. The video shows at least four boys attacking the male victim by repeatedly punching and kicking him.
Police said the department has launched an extensive investigation into the incident and will utilize any resources needed to hold the suspects responsible.
WBOC contacted Central Parkway Academy for comment. The woman who answered the phone said the school had no comment before she abruptly hung up.
Central Parkway Academy is an alternative school. It’s listed under the state’s school climate and discipline program.
The victim’s father tells WBOC one of his biggest concerns is the action or, he says, lack of action, on the part of the bus driver.
Investigators believe they have identified the attackers at this point. They say the school is being cooperative with the investigation. And a spokesman says the department expects to have more to release within 48 hours.
