H-F Teens Tell Police They Were Attacked After Vikings Victory

While returning to their car after Friday night's football game, the group was attacked on Braemar Road. One victim went to the hospital.

A group of teen-agers returning to their car Friday night after were jumped on Braemar Road, according to police.

Officers patrolling the area near the high school were alerted to the incident on the 700 block of Braemar Road around 9:45 p.m. when they tried to disband a large group of students in the street moving towards Governors Highway, according to .

Police said one teen approached them and reported being “jumped” by an unknown group of men while walking back to the car with friends after the game.

Police saw that the victims were injured and called paramedics. One victim was taken to the hospital, but none of the injuries were serious, according to police. Their car was damaged as well, according to the report. 

“This was a totally unprovoked altercation,” Flossmoor Deputy Police Chief Mike Pulec said. “We are working closely with the high school and investigators are aggressively pursuing the case now.”

Several unverified reports of other post-game skirmishes have since come in. We will post updates on this story and others as more information becomes available.

Has anyone heard what happened in the aftermath? Are the students who were attacked ok now?

Sarah, I had four kids go to HF, the oldest graduated in 2001 and the youngest in 2009. They were able to take advantage of HF's fantastic art and theater programs. Many of their friends were in choir and band. I can't speak to the HF experience today, but my kids got a great education there and really benefitted from the arts programs.

Thank you for the advice Mary... I just want my daughter to be safe, however I am not giving up on HF just yet....

I go to HF and this was an isolated incident by teens. There isn't any racial tension at HF and it still is the top school in the south suburban area.
