Bus stop beating suspect Haven French indicted after initial complaint was dismissed

Two more Tiyan High school teens have been arrested in connection to the bus stop assault last Friday.

The 17-year-old boy who was caught on camera assaulting a fellow Tiyan High school student has been indicted less than a week after the initial complaint was dismissed.

Haven French was indicted of all charges against him Tuesday afternoon after the prosecution presented evidence to a grand jury, said Office of the Attorney General Spokeswoman Carlina Charfauros.

French was indicted for aggravated assault as a second-degree felony, aggravated assault as a third-degree felony, both with vulnerable victim enhancements, and assault as a misdemeanor.

French was let off the hook last week following Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez’s decision to dismiss the initial complaint.

French was the only teen to be charged as an adult for an assault on a fellow student involving two other teens in the attack.

The incident was caught on camera and resulted in five teens being implicated in the incident.

At the time of the dismissal, Charfauros confirmed that the case was dismissed without prejudice which allowed the OAG to bring the evidence before a grand jury.
