A group of teen-agers returning to their car Friday night after Homewood-Flossmoor High Vikings’ 76-6 victory over Senn were jumped on Braemar Road, according to police.
Officers patrolling the area near the high school were alerted to the incident on the 700 block of Braemar Road around 9:45 p.m. when they tried to disband a large group of students in the street moving towards Governors Highway, according to Flossmoor police.
Police said one teen approached them and reported being “jumped” by an unknown group of men while walking back to the car with friends after the game.
Police saw that the victims were injured and called paramedics. One victim was taken to the hospital, but none of the injuries were serious, according to police. Their car was damaged as well, according to the report.
“This was a totally unprovoked altercation,” Flossmoor Deputy Police Chief Mike Pulec said. “We are working closely with the high school and investigators are aggressively pursuing the case now.”
Several unverified reports of other post-game skirmishes have since come in. We will post updates on this story and others as more information becomes available.
