Newtown police say they have arrested three Newtown High School students and are expecting three others to surrender in an investigation into an assault featured on a Web page. Police say the investigation began in February when they got complaint about a picture posted on the social networking Web site,

Chief Michael Kehoe says the picture showed a student being held against his will. He says the student suffered physical injuries.

The chief says all are being charged with third-degree assault, first-degree unlawful restrain and first-degree reckless endangerment.
