    A 15-year-old freshman with special needs was beat up by four other students in the high school's bathroom, a spokesman for the city confirmed. 

    Late Wednesday morning, the victim was taken to the hospital after being assaulted at Bassick High School in Bridgeport, Michael Gianotti, a Bridgeport spokesman, said. 

    The freshman was treated for injuries at a local hospital and is expected to be fine, Gianotti said. 

    The four students, ranging from ages 14 to 15, were arrested and accused of third degree assault. They were released on a promise to appear in court, Gianotti said.

    There were no other details at this time.
