Two Lindenhurst High School students suffered injuries during a fight Monday, police say.
Police say officers responded after a male and a female student got into an altercation on a bus outside the school just before noon.
Both students were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Police say no weapons were involved.
The incident comes just over a month after a 13-year-old student was stabbed at Lindenhurst Middle School. Parents said at a recent school board meeting that bullying was the root of the issue and demanded it be addressed to prevent more violence.
Students at Lindenhurst High School told News 12 a video of the fight is circulating on social media and described what they saw.
"I heard that she was swinging at him on the bus, he turned around, hit her with a nasty elbow, grabbed her by her neck, swung her down, started punching her," one student said. "She bit his ear, his ear was bleeding, her face was all messed up. It was a bad scene."
Superintendent Anthony J. Davidson issued a statement:
"I am writing to inform you that Suffolk County police officers responded to Lindenhurst High School at approximately 11:45 a.m. after a male and female student were involved in a physical altercation while students were on a bus outside of the school. According to the first responders, both students suffered minor injuries and were transported to local hospitals. No weapons were involved. Today's event is unfortunate, yet we know it is important for you to have accurate information regarding such events."
