Charges have now been filed against five teenagers accused of an ice bucket challenge prank. Three have been asked to turn themselves into the police station.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty announced Tuesday afternoon that three teens are charged with two counts delinquency, assault and disorderly conduct. The other two teens face charges of one count of disorderly conduct.
The teens range in age from 14-16 years old. Three of them face the most serious charges of delinquency, assault and disorderly conduct. The three teens that will be booked will be released, pending an initial Juvenile Court appearance. The other two teens will have to appear before the Juvenile Court Intake and Diversion Office.
According to prosecutors, the victim, a special needs student, was assaulted on August 18, on private property in Bay Village. It was later reported to Bay Village Police on September 3.
Bay Village resident Janice Blanton lives behind the alleged victim. She says she’s glad the case is moving forward.
“Bay Village is a wonderful community and it was very difficult for all of us to go through this,” said Blanton.
