Albany-A Turner Job Corps student who had been in Albany just four days was beaten by a group police say plotted the attack. Investigators say other students heard the attackers talking about their plan.

Police say Sunday night, a girl lured 17-year old Jade Hall to a dark area on the Job Corps campus. "Once he got back there, several men jumped out on him, grabbed him, held him to the ground, beat him, and went through his pockets to see if he had any money," Sgt. John Prickett said.

Hall did not have any money. Police say Job Corps administrators have been extremely helpful with the investigation. 

Now, eight suspects are charged with aggravated assault. A 16-year old girl and a 16-year old boy are in Youth Development Centers. The other suspects are in the Dougherty County jail. They are 19-year old Ronald Wintersmith, 19-year old Jason Bryant, 18-year old Calvin Mann, 18-year old Richard Ward, 18-year old Jeremy Swain, and 17-year old Curtis Atkinson.
