A ninth grade high school student has been arrested and charged with assault in Atlanta after he was filmed savagely beating a teacher who tried to stop him fighting with another classmate.

The teacher, identified online as Mr. Robinson, was hospitalized after the attack at Frederick Douglass High School on October 7, school officials said.

Cell phone footage captured by a student inside the classroom shows a teenage boy standing over Robinson, repeatedly punching him in the head as the educator lay curled up on the floor, with a hand extend in an effort to soften the flurry of blows.

Other educators are seen bursting through the door moments later, rushing to Robinson’s aid by tackling his attacker to the floor and restraining him on the ground.
