ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (AP) - Police say a 17-year-old Pennsylvania high school student is being charged in juvenile court for an attack on another student that was captured on a third student’s cellphone video.

Aliquippa police aren’t identifying the suspect because she’s being charged in Beaver County juvenile court.

But Aliquippa School District Superintendent David Wytiaz (VEE’-chaz) says discipline has been administered, which he can’t discuss due to confidentiality rules.

Aliquippa police Capt. Douglas Edgell says the aggressor is being charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and harassment.

The incident happened Friday.

The alleged victim’s parents say they’ve complained that the suspect has bullied her daughter since she transferred to the school last fall. They went to Pittsburgh TV stations with the video in hopes police and school officials would take action.

The incident happened Friday.
