A video showing two girls involved in an altercation with a boy with autism at a Rowland Heights high school Wednesday has drawn outrage online and from community members.
The distressed boy is seen surrounded by a group of girls who laugh while hitting and pulling at him on campus at Rowland High School.
In the video, he fights back, trying to push and swat them away while in tears.
“The administration handled the situation with immediate and firm disciplinary action before the end of the school day,” the school said in a statement after the video quickly spread online.
The school did not provide information on how the incident was handled, but students told KTLA the girls were suspended for five days.
