ENFIELD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Police say three Connecticut magnet school students who attacked a junior varsity football coach are facing assault charges.

Enfield police Chief Carl Sferrazza said Tuesday the coach reported he’d been assaulted Nov. 16 following an Enfield potluck dinner for the Capitol Region Education Council’s football team.

Sferrazza says video shows the coach being punched from behind in a parking lot and falling to the ground. Two other students then kicked and punched him in the back of the head.

The coach was hospitalized for treatment.

Sferrazza says police were able to identify the three juveniles who were involved. The teens are students at Capitol Region Education Council schools. Two of the youths are 15, the other is 14.
