"We know that there are people out there who know what happened," Badgerow said. "Our victims range from 16 to 20 years old. So parents, if you know that your kids were out last night and you're not quite sure where they were, or you're a little suspicious about what might be going on, we'd like to ask you for your help."

Police urged parents to talk to their children and pass any information along to officers.

"As you can imagine any thing involving a party like this, we know that there's going to be cell phone video, we know that there's going to be lots of people recording things," Badgerow said. "So we'd like to ask for people if you have that, or you know what happened to send that in as well."

Badgerow also asked homeowners along Stepney and Weybridge to check their security cameras to see if they captured anything that may be connected to the violence.
