Three Yorkville High School students have been charged with battery in connection with two separate altercations that occurred on YHS grounds.

According to a press release from the Yorkville Police Department, both altercations occurred at approximately at noon, Tuesday, Nov. 19. In the first incident, two 17-year-old juvenile students were involved in a physical altercation on the YHS campus. At the same time, in a different location on YHS grounds, a 16-year-old juvenile student struck another juvenile.

Following investigations by school administrators and the Yorkville Police Department, the 17-year-old juveniles and the 16-year-old juvenile have each been charged with battery.

The cases were referred to the office of the Kendall County State's Attorney, according to Deputy Chief Behr Pfizenmaier.

The release also stated that the two altercations are believed to be separate and unrelated.

The charges mark the second and third cases of battery in a week that have occurred at Yorkville High School. On Thursday, Nov. 14, two 16-year-old juveniles were charged with battery following a physical altercation on school grounds.
