On Friday January 15, two boys from Brien McMahon were confronted by 15 to 20 males from Stamford High School, NBC Connecticut stated. The males followed Eric Vento and Anthony Ventrello to their car and asked them if they were from Norwalk. After they both said yes, they both viciously attacked by the mob.
The mob viciously kicked and punched them and eventually ended up stabbing one of the victims on the right side of his chest and causing the other victim to have several problems with his teeth. Stamford police investigated the tragic event that happened after the basketball game and found the culprit.
A 19 year old male, named Malik Claiborne was the leader of the mob, police asked for a warrant to search him and immediately arrest him and Malik has a $250,000 bond and his court date will be on January 29th. Malik is being charged for second degree assault and conspiracy to commit a crime. Police are still working on the case and are trying to find other people who were involved in the attack.
“After the incident that happened after the basketball game I think schools should be more cautious and be protective of their students. There should be more security around the whole school and have them check if students or other people are carrying weapons to harm other people.” said Esther Clebert (‘17).
In the article from NBC Connecticut Sharon Beadle a public affairs officers that works for Stamford public schools stated, “as always, the safety of all students is a top priority for us. We are working with SPD and our Security team to review the security measures in place Friday evening to determine if any changes should be made going forward. We already reached out to Brien McMahon’s principal to express our concern and offer any assistance.”
