Maria Baez, a former New York City Council member, said her grandson, Brandonn Baez, was punched in the face by a classmate last Thursday, June 16. She said the attack left her grandson with a broken nose and loose teeth.
Brandonn has had to see several doctors and now wears a plastic guard on his face. He hasn’t been to school since the incident.
“They kept bullying me, calling me names, pushing me around,” LoHud reports the child saisd. Brandonn said. “
The family says they reported the bullying to the school several times before the boy was punched, but Principal Roland Briceno said the first he’d heard about this was the day before the punching incident.
