(EAGNEWS) — WASHINGTON, D.C. – A mother of a KIPP DC Spring Academy student is demanding justice after a surveillance video caught an adult in the school slugging her 7-year-old son in the stomach.

KIPP DC Spring Academy student John Mclean told WJLA he was in the school hallway around 8:30 a.m. last Wednesday when a man walking by stepped over to him, punched him in the stomach, and strolled out of the building.

“I was in the hallway, the day was on Wednesday, and then somebody punched me in my stomach,” the boy said.
