Yangsan Police Station sent two middle school students to the prosecution on charges of joint assault under the Act on Punishment of Violence and Others.
The other two were juveniles under law (criminal minors, between the ages of 10 and 14), so they were handed over to the Ulsan District Court Juvenile Division.
These four people are accused of gang violence, such as forcing a Mongolian student victim to drink alcohol for two to three hours from midnight on July 3 this year, and tying their hands and legs and slaps them several times in the cheek.
