Chariho student charged with assault after fight at school

RICHMOND — A 15-year-old student at Chariho High School has been charged with assault and battery involving another student and a school official on Dec. 17.

School Resource Officer Anthony Zoglio, of the Richmond Police Department, arrested the male student for simple assault and battery, felony assault on a school official, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Zoglio responded to students’ descriptions of a “fight in progress” between two students in the school gymnasium, according to police. The victim suffered injuries, including a laceration above the right eye and a possible broken nose, and was taken to South County Hospital for evaluation, police said.

The teacher who tried to intervene was also physically assaulted by the student, according to Chief Elwood Johnson. The teacher reported minor neck and arm injuries, he said.

The arrested student was processed at the station and released into his mother’s custody, pending a petition for a Family Court hearing on the charges.
