RANDOLPH, MASS. (WHDH) - A police officer was injured Monday while breaking up a fight between two juveniles outside Randolph High School.

Randolph police Sgt. Robert LeGrice responded to a report of multiple youths fighting in front of the Memorial Parkway school around 2 p.m., according to Randolph police.

While trying to break up the melee, police say LeGrice was pushed to the ground.

Two suspects involved in the fighting were arrested.

LeGrice, a 30-year veteran of the department, was treated and released at a local hospital.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on four counts of assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. A second 16-year-old boy was charged with assault and battery, resisting arrest, and interfering with a police officer.

Both will be arraigned Tuesday in Quincy Juvenile Court.
