CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police say five people have been arrested in connection with a fight inside a suburban Philadelphia high school that was videotaped and posted online.

Chester police say they opened an investigation after seeing the video showing one youth being beaten, kicked and struck with wooden chairs in the Chester High library.

Mayor John Linder praised police for working quickly on an investigation that resulted in the arrest of five students.

Joel Watkins, the state-appointed receiver of the Chester Upland School District, said the violence Tuesday was recorded on a cellphone video.
