Police Warn: Violent Attacks at Buchanan High School

Posted:
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) -

Clovis Police say roving gangs are attacking students on and near Buchanan High School.

Police have beefed up patrols, and want parents to keep kids off campus at night.

In one incident, a group of attackers beat up a 15 year old, stole his bike, and took off.

Blake Haroldsen and his buddies were also assaulted near the campus tennis courts.

"There were like six or seven of them...they jumped us," he said.

Two more assaults happened on Halloween night, sending one student to the hospital.

Police say they're not related to what happened to the boys on the bikes.

Karla Corcoran and her son live across from Buchanan High School. Her son's friend knocked on her door after he was beaten up.

"I was in total shock when I found out what had happened...haven't been any problems in recent years or ever because we've always lived around the school," she said.

Haroldsen and his friends are staying away from campus at night.

"Clovis is a good place, and I don't expect anybody to jump us at Buchanan," said Haroldsen.

If you have information that may help police track down the attackers, call Central Valley Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP (7867). You can remain anonymous.
