AKRON -- Akron Schools spokesman Mark Williamson says there are now a total of 27 students who may have had a role in the April 11 brawl in the halls of Kenmore High School, after Akron police arrested 13 more juveniles.
The quickly escalating fight ensued shortly after 9 a.m. April 11 when a student from Buchtel High School entered Kenmore, police say, with the help of a Kenmore student who may have propped open a door.
Four of the students arrested Monday were referred to the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center. The other nine were released to parents or guardians.
One student, accused of attacking a staff member at the school, faces a felony assault charge.
At the scene on April 11, police arrested 13 students.
Today's arrests came after further investigation using surveillance video and other methods.
All involved in the fight face discipline from Akron Public Schools.
Kenmore's principal has recommended some expulsions. Students may appeal an expulsion through a hearing before an officer appointed by district administrators.
