KSAL StaffAugust 4, 2015

Seven young basketball players in Wichita for a weekend tournament are arrested after police say they went on an assault spree over the weekend.

The boys were from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and ranged in age from 12 to 18 years old. Police say they were in town for the Mid America Youth Basketball tournament.

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza says officers responded around 11 p.m. Sunday to a home where a 48-year-old man reported the group of teens approached him as he stood on his front porch.

Espinoza says the youths yelled at him and threw rocks, bottles, bricks and concrete chunks. Espinoza says the group beat a 28-year-old man who fled the house, and a later 32-year-old man who was riding his bicycle.
