Thunder Bay Police say they have arrested seven teenagers in connection to an assault which took place last week at Hammarskjold High School.

Police have now clarified that two incidents occurred on December 12th, the first taking place across the street from the school, the second inside a school bathroom a short time later, involving multiple assailants.

The 15-year-old victim was taken to hospital by Superior North EMS for treatment of injuries.

A School Resource Officer became involved in the ongoing investigation. As a result, multiple suspects were identified and seven have since been arrested.

Three 14-year-old females, a 15-year-old female, two 15-year-old males, and a 16-year-old male have all been charged with assault.

Their identities of the accused are being withheld in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

All have been released with conditions and future court appearance dates.
