Police have arrested and charged three teenagers in connection with a series of violent assaults that occurred after a concert at Newark's Prudential Center.

Police Director Samuel DeMaio says two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old were arrested Wednesday after police received a tip that they had been involved in Saturday's assaults. The three were arrested as they rode an NJ Transit bus on Broad Street.
