Seven Bennett High School students were arrested overnight for allegedly roughing up a city employee on May 16 at Shoshone Park, Mayor Byron W. Brown and Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda said Wednesday.

The students were involved in a scuffle at the park at approximately 3 p.m. when city worker, James LeGrand, 66, started shouting to the youths to stop the attack, officials said. The youths then turned on LeGrand, who is a member of the Mayor’s Impact Team. He was able to return to work the next day.
