WARNER ROBINS -- Three more teens were arrested Friday for their alleged involvement in an attack at Warner Robins High School last week when the school was closed for snow.

D’Angelo Montell Roquemore, 17, of Warner Robins, has been charged with aggravated assault in the Jan. 29 brawl, according to a police news release.

In addition, a 15-year-old boy from Warner Robins and a 14-year-old boy from Warner Robins were each charged with aggravated assault, the release states. Police did not release the boys’ names because they are juveniles.

Two teens already were arrested in the incident, bringing the total number of arrests to five.

Shymalik Raekwon Mitchell, 17, of Warner Robins, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault, and Terrell Antonio Boyd, 17, also of Warner Robins, was charged with battery.

Roquemore, Mitchell and Boyd have been released on bond, according to the Houston County jail website. As of 5 p.m. Friday, the juveniles had not been released, said Tabitha Clark, police spokeswoman.

According to police, a group of about 30 people were having a snowball fight at the high school Jan. 29.

Members of the group allegedly began to jump on a vehicle in the parking lot, and when a man asked them to stop, they allegedly attacked that person and three others who came to his aid.

One of the victims, a 27-year-old man from Byron, previously told The Telegraph about 30 people were directly involved in the attack and that racial slurs were yelled at the victims during the assault.

The victims are white, and the alleged assailants are black.

The victim said three of them, including himself, suffered concussions, and one had two cracked ribs.
