WAYNESBORO, Pa. - After his own investigation of a recent attack on a student, the principal of Waynesboro Area Senior High School said he has concluded that only one of five suspects was involved in the beating.
"There was some name-calling back and forth by the others, but nothing physical happened," said Larry Bricker. He said he tended to believe witnesses who had no interest in any of the parties involved, who said the other four, while they had words with the victim, had not touched him.
Despite Bricker's findings, Borough Police Chief Glenn Phenicie said the investigation will continue.
"We'll be talking to the people he said he talked to, but that doesn't mean there won't be more arrests," Phenicie said.
