DAGSBORO, Del. — Three teens have been arrested in connection with a fight at a Delaware high school that left another student and three faculty members injured.

News outlets report the Delaware State Police said in a news release that three female students aged 17, 16 and 15 attacked a 17-year-old girl who was seated in the Indian River High School office on Monday.

Faculty members tried to break up the fight, placing the 17-year-old alleged aggressor in another room. Police said a staff member who tried to calm her down was pushed. Police say the 15-year-old pushed to the floor two male staff members who tried to remove her.

The 17-year-old victim was treated at a hospital for a head injury and facial cuts.

The three teens face charges, including rioting.
