5 students suspended after hazing incident

‘Five students from Whitman-Hanson Regional High School were suspended this week after a freshman student was taped to a bench and punched in the groin during a bizarre hazing incident, school officials said yesterday.

School Superintendent John F. McEwan said four sophomores and a junior decided Jan. 17 to pull a prank on a freshman after school in the boys’ locker room. [..]

The students first grabbed a freshman, held him down, and started teasing him, McEwan said.

“That student got away,” he said.

The group then went after another freshman, who, at first, was laughing as well, McEwan said.’
