The Grafton Police Department arrested seven local teenagers Saturday on witness-intimidation charges for allegedly harassing the 15-year-old victim of a violent crime.

According to a Facebook statement by the Grafton Police Department, officers James Crosby and Alvin Hulbert spoke with the mother of a 15-year-old who allegedly had been the victim of a violent crime.

The officers learned that the individual had been the subject of repeated and ongoing harassment and intimidation, physically and through social media by a group of male and female subjects, both in and out of school.

After Crosby and Hulbert completed an investigation, the following subjects were arrested:
