Philadelphia police say they’ve arrested four teens on assault charges in flash mob attacks around Temple University in which college students were beaten, an officer was knocked down and a police horse was punched in the face.

Police say the attacks were carried out Friday night by bands of as many as 100 boys and girls.

Temple spokesman Ray Betzner told television station NBC10 that roving juveniles played a “cat-and-mouse game” with police.

Police say students were surrounded and then punched, kicked, robbed and in some cases knocked to the ground by groups of 20 to 30 teens. Arrests have been made in only one of the cases.

Police say a boy punched a police horse twice in the face, and another threw a Temple officer to the ground.
