Teen injured in Bear River fistfight

A fight between two male students recently at Bear River High School caused the victim to sustain injuries in the face, Lt. Joe Salivar, with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, said Tuesday.

A fight broke out during lunch time last Thursday with a 17-year-old assaulting an 18-year-old, Salivar said.

“These two kids have a history of bickering back and forth – nothing out of the ordinary,” Salivar said. “On March 6, they started getting verbal, pushing and shoving during the physical education class. They were challenging each other back and forth, and that stopped.

“Later that day, at lunchtime, the suspect approached the victim and hit him at least three times in the face area,” Salivar said. “We don’t know how severe it was. We haven’t had the opportunity to interview the suspect.”
