Pennbrook Middle School attack: Families protest after student beat with Stanley Cup

Outraged parents and students gathered Tuesday morning for a peaceful protest after a brutal incident left a middle school student hospitalized last week.

Police say a 13-year-old student used a metal Stanley mug to violently beat a fellow 12-year-old student in the head at Pennbrook Middle School.

The attack, which police described as unprovoked, sent the young student to the hospital. She is now recovering at home.

A Pennsylvania middle school student accused of beating a classmate with a Stanley Cup allegedly attacked a sheriff's deputy with a water jug during their first hearing.

Students and parents addressed the school board during an emotional meeting on Thursday.

One student stated, nearly breaking down, "We had to sit there and watch them clean up her blood off the table and ground and I will never forget that."

North Penn School District Superintendent Todd Bauer condemned the attack, stating that school officials and police are investigating.

"This should not have happened, period. Such behavior has no place in our schools," Bauer said. "You expect better. We expect better, and certainly I do, as well.


Pennsylvania middle school student accused of unprovoked attack on classmate using Stanley cup

A 13-year-old student at Pennbrook Middle School is facing charges for what police are calling an unprovoked attack against a classmate.

At last week’s school board meeting, at least one parent and student said they contacted school guidance counselors with concerns about the 13-year-old accused of the attack.

Nicole Brown, a parent who organized Tuesday’s protest, said she met with the superintendent for about an hour afterwards.

She says the superintendent told her the student was brought to the office because of those concerns before the incident, but a staff member asked to take the student to get lunch, and the principal allowed it.

FOX 29 asked the district about this discussion during their meeting, but they are not commenting.

"They did have warning, they chose not to do the right thing," Brown says.
