Police have identified a group of students from Mohave Middle School and Saguaro High School who were allegedly involved in violent incidents last month.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Twelve juveniles have been arrested by Scottsdale police for a series of violent acts that occurred last month. 

After reviewing videos and conducting interviews about the after school incidents, police have identified a group of students from Mohave Middle School and Saguaro High School who were allegedly involved in the incidents.

Five juveniles were arrested for their alleged involvement in a fight that occurred after school on Aug. 18 in a parking lot near Granite Reef Road and McDonald Drive. 

Four juveniles were arrested for robbing a kid at Fashion Square Mall on Aug. 18. These kids were allegedly involved in the fight that occurred earlier that same day. 

Three juveniles were arrested for assaulting another juvenile after school on Aug. 21 at the McDonald's near Granite Reef and McDonald Drive. 

Nobody was seriously injured in these incidents.

Scottsdale police said some of the students have been referred to the Restorative Justice Intervention Program, meaning the criminal charges won't be filed if the juveniles complete the program's requirements. Others have been referred for prosecution in juvenile court.
