HUDSON FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities in an upstate New York village say they've charged seven teenagers with luring other teens to places where they beat them and videotaped the attacks.

Police in Hudson Falls said Monday they investigated three attacks in May involving different groups of teens.

Officials say most of the suspects are 14 or 15 years old and have been charged in juvenile court with conspiracy to commit assault. Two 17-year-old girls were charged with child endangerment and will be prosecuted as adults.

The attacks occurred at a home, outside a convenience store and at the high school in Hudson Falls, 45 miles north of Albany.

Police say two victims suffered bumps and bruises and a third suffered a concussion.
