LILBURN, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – Charges have been filed against a Parkview High School student after he punched another he punched another student in the face.
David Egan is a sophomore at the school and after weight lifting class he was confronted by another student accusing him of stealing his tennis shoes.
“This is a premeditated brutal attack, and there was more than one person,” Danny Egan, David’s father, told WSB-AM. “The most disturbing thing about it is no one tried to help him.”
The confrontation was caught on video with many other students in the locker room as it occurred. You can even hear laughter at some point during it.
“There were three cell phones videotaping, you know, he sucker punched him, he’s in the middle of trying to talk,” Danny Egan explained to the station. “He dazed him, and then exploited the fact that he was dazed.”
David Egan had constructive surgery to fix his nose. The nose was actually detached from his skull as a result of the force of the punches.
“He hit him very hard at the top of his nose, which means he actually broke where the nose connects to the skull,” Danny Egan told WXIA-TV.
Danny Egan is questioning why the school didn’t do more and will not send his son back to that school.
“This is my child,” Danny Egan told WXIA. “How would you feel if you saw a person fracturing his face, smashing him up against a locker, punching him so hard that it breaks his nose off his skull?”
A student has been charged with aggravated battery.
A representative from the school said they did take disciplinary action against the accused but that it was a police matter.
