Fight erupts over stolen cell phone

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - Ashburn Police said a teenager had his phone stolen Sunday morning, and when he went to a city park to get it back, a big fight started.

Two brothers whose phone was taken were identified as Lorenzo Bolden, 18, and Chris Clark, 13.

Ashburn Police identified the five people in the fight, and arrested them.

Decovian Brown, Telvin Yancey, Trentavious Pritchett, Furdale Jackson, and Xavier Brown all face charges of simple battery, cruelty to children, and gang activity.

While gang activity has been an issue in the area, police believe this fight started over a stolen cell phone, and was not a gang initiation.

Ashburn police said they hope this shows they're serious about stopping gang activity.
