Bainbridge --  There are concerns that gang activity is increasing in Bainbridge. School police say the 16-year-old victim in that attack did nothing wrong.

 The student, a juvenile, who's name was not released, was attacked Thursday afternoon at a park near Bainbridge High School.    

"It wasn't anything personal, it wasn't a racial issue. It was basically an initiation for that particular group." School Police Chief Paul Gordon. "From the information and interviews that I've had with some other students, he was basically trying to up his rank in that particular group."

Police say the victim was hit with some sort of blunt object. He was taken to the hospital where he got 14 stitches in his upper lip. He's now back in school. His attacker has been expelled and charges are pending.
