Video shows a teenager being brutally caned in front of a California high school

(KTLA) – Parents are calling for action after video captured a teenager’s brutal beating at a California high school.

The video shows a group of teenagers punching and kicking another boy while he is curled up on the ground.

“They are trampling on his head, my son is lying on the floor in a fetal position,” said the student’s mother, Martha Payan. “I see a couple of students … his cousin is trying to get in to try and break up and they won’t allow him to do that. One of the people comes up to him with a knife and tells him if he gets close, he’ll get it.”

Payan said she was at work Wednesday when she received a call from another parent saying her 14-year-old son, a freshman at Patriot High School in Jurupa Valley, had been beaten.

At one point in the video, three of her son’s attackers can be seen punching and kicking him at the same time.

“He’s helpless. It’s just heartbreaking,” Payan said, “because I know kids, my son, had to go through this with no staff or anyone to help him while he was being trampled on the floor.”

The beating happened in the parking lot after school.

Payan says the attackers previously threatened her son on social media over a dispute over a girl and she is furious that no school staff or resource officials intervened.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department released a statement to KTLA regarding the incident, which read in part:

“The incident was reported after school closed. Therefore, there were no school resource officers on campus. It is currently under investigation.”

Angel Payan, the teenager’s father, said he was angry that medical attention was not sought for his son. He said he rushed to the school and didn’t understand why officers only called the parents and not the 911 number.

The teenager’s father took him to the hospital and was told by doctors that his son had a concussion.

“My son said when they took one of the kicks his face slipped on the concrete so he had scratches all over his face,” the teen’s mother told KTLA.

Jurupa Valley Unified School District officials said they could not comment on the case and referred KTLA back to law enforcement.

The victim’s parents said they wanted consequences for others involved in the attack. Martha said she believes one of the attackers is a high school senior from a nearby school and the other two are 18 or older.

The authorities did not confirm the age of the attackers.
