- New Castle County teenager is facing a number of charges, accused of taking part in a beating on the University of Delaware campus. Officers say 18-year-old Joshua Bovie and five others yelled obscenities and threw a water bottle at a UD student and two friends as they walked down Academy Street last Friday.

When one of the victims threw a beverage back at the car, six people jumped out and chased them toward [INAUDIBLE] Hall. Police say the group then punched and kicked the victims, stealing one of their phones in the process. Bovie was arrested on charges including robbery and assault yesterday. Warrants have been issued for the remaining attackers.
