At least seven parents of teen-agers accused of violating the city's 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew will have their day in court next week.

All received court-appearance tickets as the result of a police crackdown in curfew violators. The crackdown was a response to complaints of late-night rowdyism, fighting and at least one gang attack on a youth in the Genesee-Locust streets area. The parents are expected to appear before City Court Judge Gerald D. Watson beginning at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. Mayor Thomas C. Rotondo Jr. announced the crackdown after the beating of a teen-ager early Tuesday. "I'm not about to let any youths take over the city," Rotondo said. "We will not tolerate this. From now on, the curfew law will be strictly enforced."
