STAMFORD - Police say they have charged a former Stamford High School basketball player with leading a mob-style attack on two teenagers at a high school basketball game.
They say the vicious attack happened in the high school's parking lot and involved as many as 15-20 assailants. It occurred right after Friday's basketball game against Norwalk’s Brien McMahon High School. The two schools have a rivalry that has caused issues in the past, and police had extra security on hand at Friday's game.
Malik Clayborne, 19, has been charged with second-degree assault in connection with the incident. Police say he dropped out of school that morning.
