Assault Charges in Suburban School Fight

Police charged a 15-year-old boy for his role in a fight at a Montgomery County high school Friday.

The suspect and a 16-year-old boy, both students at Perkiomen Valley High School in Collegeville, were fighting inside a school hallway shortly before 2 p.m., according to reports.

During the tussle, the victim was knocked unconscious after his head struck a support pole, according to officials.

Authorities initially transported him to Phoenixville Hospital before relocating the injured teen to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The suspect faces charges including aggravated assault and harassment.

The Perkiomen Valley School District serves nearly 5,900 students at seven schools, according to its website. In January the district was awarded the Governor's Award for Excellence in Academics in six of its schools.
