The three 15-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy were processed into a juvenile detention center Tuesday on suspicion of what would be felony battery if the boys were adults, the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office said.
A fifth teen remains unidentified, it said.
The beating occurred Monday at Harrison High School, the office said. The assailants caught the 15-year-old victim inside the restroom and wouldn’t let him leave.
The victim’s mother took him to a hospital to be checked out and notified the sheriff’s office, the Journal and Courier reported.
