Chariho students charged in separate incidents


WOOD RIVER JCT. — Two students in the Chariho RYSE (Reach Students Through Support and Education) program were charged by Richmond police last week after incidents at the Switch Road campus.

Richmond School Resource officer Anthony Zoglio arrested a 15-year-old boy on June 2, charging him with disorderly conduct, after the teen allegedly threatened another student to fight “if they failed to vacate a particular seat,” and then threw trash at the individual. Police said the teen then threatened school administrators when they attempted to intervene.

In another incident on June 3, a 16-year-old male in the RYSE program allegedly engaged officers Zoglio and James Patton, in a “brief foot chase” in a wooded area near the campus before being arrested. Police said the teen fled after “berating male and female school administrator in a profane and derogatory manner and threw food at staff to provoke an altercation.” School officials said he then fled the building, prompting a call to police.

Both teens were released to the custody of a parent and both will be petitioned to appear in Family Court.
