Philadelphia teen arrested for bullying

FRESNO, Calif.

Cell phone video shows a 13-year-old boy being kicked and dragged through the snow by seven classmates.

Their faces have been blurred to protect identities. The victim was on his way home from school last month. The boy tried to get away but after several attempts, the bullies hung him by his jacket on a tall metal fence.

The victim says he was terrified. "I tried to get out, tried to leave, tried to escape, tried to get up the tree and run away, but even when I did that, got out the tree the first time, they attacked me and they caught me again."

The superintendent where the teens attend school released a statement saying the safety of every child in the district is of utmost importance.
