According to Oakley Police Chief Bani Kollo, they received a call from the school at approximately 11:30 am of a female victim who sustained injuries from a physical confrontation. The female had potential head injuries and was Airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where she is being admitted.
One subject is in custody at this point for Felony Battery and interviews are still underway. The motive is unknown at this point. The victim’s medical status is currently unknown.
When I asked if there was more than two persons involved, he replied that the police department is still conducting interviews and investigating the incident.
According to the Contra Costa Times, they claim two students were taken into custody while Freedom High Principal Erik Faulkner said the attack does not appear to be gang-related. Faulkner said Oakley police were summoned to the campus after two girls attacked a third in the cafeteria, possibly over an incident between the victim and one of her attackers on Wednesday.
