OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Five Oklahoma City high school students have been arrested after a video posted on social media shows an assault of another student.

The Oklahoman reports that the video shows a boy at Capitol Hill High School taking a punch to the face in front of a crowd and being stomped on while lying on the ground.

Police arrested a 16-year-old student seen kicking the victim in the face on a felony aggravated assault complaint. Another student in the video who punched the victim was arrested on a misdemeanor assault complaint.

Two 17-year-olds were arrested on felony complaints of threatening acts of violence. Police say one made verbal threats toward a teacher and another posted threats on social media.

A fifth student was arrested on a misdemeanor complaint of assault and violence for assaulting two teachers trying to stop the altercation.
