Two more Bennett High School students have been arrested in connection with the May 16 violent assault on a 66-year-old man at Shoshone Park. The arrests bring the number of students charged to 10.
In what police called the final arrests in the case, Edward Magby, 18, and Damari Phillips, 17, were both charged with second-degree robbery as were the eight other suspects in the mid-afternoon attack.
Police took advantage of cell phone video filming of the assault on the victim who had been trying to break up a fight among other youths in the park about 3:30 p.m. that day.
Charged earlier in the case were Jaquan Woodard, 18; Quashaun Moore, 16; Homer Barney Jr., 16; Darvin Whitely, 17; Rashawn Rivera, 17, and three younger boys who police will not publicly identify.
The investigation was headed by Northwest District Detective Carl Lundin.
