From staff reportsAugust 25, 2013 

— Four teenagers were arrested Friday for a fight outside Southeast Raleigh High School that left two students and a female school administrator injured, according to arrest warrants and a police official.

School employee Abbey Weispfenning was struck while trying to break up the fight, said Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue. The other victims were Oscar Javier Rosa-Maldonado and Jose Jesus Solis-Aguilar, who were repeatedly punched and kicked, according to the warrants.

Those arrested included Daquan Wesly Hough, 18, Darius Josiah Terrell Wright, 18, Torrey Terrell Smith, 18, and Alquon Radeek Brodie, 17.

The teens were each charged with these misdemeanors: two counts of assault inflicting serious injury, two counts of ethnic intimidation and one count of assault on a school employee. Plus, Hough was charged with public disturbance for “his role in instigating the incident,” Sughrue said.
