STRATFORD - Parents are taking extra precautions Tuesday after word an alleged fight between students in Stratford was caught on a cell phone camera. However, police say it looks like the fight between the teens was an isolated incident.

Police say the incident occurred after school on Friday at a park. According to Stratford Police Capt. Ken Bakalar, the incident was not random. Bakalar says it was a planned meeting between two students.

Four teens, including the alleged victim, were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Police have also stepped up patrols in the area as a precaution. However, some parents say they are still worried about their children.

Some parents are blaming the incident on a group of bullies they say has been terrorizing their kids for several months.
