Within 24 hours, police had arrested two Hoboken juveniles, and two more were arrested in the following 48 hours.
Three of young men arrested are 15 years old and the third is 14 years old; all are students at Demarest High School and Connors Middle School in Hoboken.
They are charged with assault, and police said more arrests may be pending.
