Toronto-area high school students, parent charged after violent fight caught on video

A father who was seriously injured after police say he stepped into a violent fight between his son and another Toronto-area high school student earlier this month has been charged along with four other teenagers after videos of the incident surfaced online.

York Regional Police said a student from Cardinal Carter Catholic High School in Aurora and a student from St. Theresa Lisieux Catholic High School in Richmond Hill gathered with a group of other teens near Briar Nine Park in Oak Ridges for a fight around 3 p.m. on Dec. 2.

During the fight, which can be seen in two videos shared on social media, police said a parent of one of the students got into an argument with another student that escalated to the point where the teenager was assaulted.

The first video posted on social media appears to show two students punching each other repeatedly when a man can be seen walking up to where they were fighting. The video then appears to show a man striking a student in the background.

Police said a group of teenagers then assaulted the father, who was seriously injured in the incident.  (more...)
