WASHINGTON – Police are investigating after cameras caught a parent punching a 7-year-old at Washington, D.C. elementary school.

“I was in the hallway, the way was on Wednesday, and then somebody punched me in my stomach,” 7-year-old John told WJLA.

Mom Lena Mclean requested the video and was shocked to see another parent punch John, unprovoked, making him fall to the ground in pain. The man continues walking and leaves the building as John lies on the ground.

“You watched my son on that ground and you didn’t do nothing… and all you could say to me is you were playing?” said Lena.

A police report has been filed and an investigation is ongoing.
