- As many as 60 students and their parents broke out at a Pittsburgh school bus stop after class on Monday and then again on Tuesday
- Police have already arrested five adults and minors allegedly involved in the beatdown and are looking for close to a dozen more
Cell phone video captured the shocking incident, which began with a crowd of teenagers fighting in the streets of Swissvale after school when their parents joined in.
Police have already arrested five adults and minors allegedly involved in the beatdown, and are looking for close to a dozen more.
‘They were riots’, Swissvale Police Chief Greg Geppert told CBS News.
Since the fights, police have increased patrols near the bus stop to protect residents.
The students and parents involved were reportedly from the Woodland Hills School district.
They are seen on the tape punching and kicking each other and wrestling on the ground.
‘It was appalling. I’ve been very disappointed,’ Woodland Hills School Superintendent Alan Johnson told CBS.
The superintendent said that any students involved in the brawls will be suspended and expelled from school.
In the meantime, locals who witnessed the fights in the neighborhood along south Braddock Avenue in Swissvale said they are afraid to walk to the store.
‘I’m afraid for my life. I won’t go for a walk anymore,’ a woman who didn’t want to be identified told CBS.
Four different local police departments are working to find all of the students and adults fighting on the video.
