WILTON, Conn. -- A Ridgefield football player taking part in a scavenger hunt that called for urinating on Wilton High's new athletic field was assaulted by Wilton students, according to the Ridgefield Press.

The Ridgefield teen was beaten with golf clubs and a baseball bat after a confrontation on the field Wednesday night, the Press said.

Wilton police said in a statement Friday that Ridgefield students had gone to Wilton High's Athletic Stadium on Kristine Lilly Way in Wilton as part of a scavenger hunt, police said.

Because the scavenger hunt had been publicized, Wilton High students knew about it and some of them confronted their northern neighbors at the stadium at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

Police said there was a confrontation and altercation, and the Ridgefield teen was assaulted. The victim was later taken to the Danbury Hospital by his parents for injuries, police said. The incident was reported to police at about 10 p.m. Wednesday.

No arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed in the case, police said.

The administrations at both Wilton High and Ridgefield High have been notified of the incident, police said.

The investigation is ongoing by the Wilton Police Youth Division.

Police did not release details on the type of scavenger hunt game being played.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Wilton police at 203-834-6260.
