Assailant Bashes Dewey Student’s Head With Pipe Outside Of School

Three thugs attacked two students across the street from John Dewey High School (50 Avenue X) this morning, hospitalizing one after bashing him in the head with a pipe.

The thieves grabbed a bag with a cell phone and headphones from the 16-year-old victim, then struck his 17-year-old friend in the head with a pipe. The 17-year-old was taken to Lutheran Hospital, where he required staples to close the head wound, according to the New York Post.

The other student was treated for minor scratches and cuts to the face.

Police eventually caught up with all three of the suspects – ages 17, 18 and 21 – charging them with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
