Sandusky Register Staff • Jan 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Numerous residents tipped off police to the large crowd of children actively fighting at about 6 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived, the crowd had mostly dispersed, but they located a few stragglers involved in the brawl nearby.

The boy’s aunt told police a group of children had approached the house, shouting that the boy was a snitch and challenging him to go outside to fight, according to a police report.

Meanwhile, the boy refused to provide officers with any details, the report said.

Three bystanders who the aunt said were involved were charged with disorderly conduct: Shayquon Harvey, 18, 500 block Elm St.; boy, 17, 700 block Sycamore Line; boy, 16, 400 block E. Washington St. Harvey was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The boy has allegedly received multiple threats, following a fight in a Foxborough Circle apartment building in late August.

Police later arrested more than a dozen people on gang-related charges.
