This is the shocking moment a 15-year-old boy was battered by a cruel gang of school bullies in a savage attack which was uploaded to Facebook.
The defenceless teen was rushed to hospital after being brutally beaten by the pack of yobs during the cowardly attack on Monday (11/9).
Police were called to Rawlett School, in Tamworth, Staffs., following the assault, which happened at the end of the school day at 3.45pm.
Harrowing footage shows the terrified boy being penned into a corner and repeatedly punched and kicked in the head by four young thugs wearing school uniform.
One of them can be heard saying “Don’t hit him yet” as he tries to start a video recording on his mobile phone.
A screaming girl can also be heard shouting “What are you all doing?” as they kick and punch the helpless lad as other onlookers laugh.
The teenage victim was taken to Tamworth’s Sir Robert Peel Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
The shocking video was uploaded to social media where it was viewed more than 600,000 times before it was removed.
The school confirmed the fight happened on its premises and said Staffordshire Police had been informed.
But the force has revealed none of those involved would be taken to court as the victim had asked for no charges to be brought.
A Staffordshire Police spokesperson said: “We were called to reports of a 15-year-old boy studying at Rawlett High School in Tamworth having been assaulted by several children around 3:45pm on Monday September 11.
“Since the report it has also come to our attention that someone has posted the video onto Facebook.
“The boy attended Sir Robert Peel Hospital to have his injuries checked, although none of the injuries were serious.
“Officers have spoken to the family and the school separately.
“The victim’s wishes for no criminal proceedings have been recorded. Instead they are happy for the school to deal with the matter internally.
“Therefore no further action will be taken by police.”
A Rawlett School spokesman said: “Staff picked up that a fight was taking place at the time and went to the scene immediately.
“Parents were involved straight after the incident and the police have been informed.
“As a school we will be fully supporting any police investigations over the next few days.
“In accordance with school discipline policy we’ll be taking appropriate action with the pupils involved.
“We have already planned discussions with all pupils to challenge such anti-social behaviour.
“As far as the video is concerned, we were made aware it had been uploaded to Facebook within minutes and will be asking the original poster to remove it to protect the student involved.”
