A junior varsity basketball coach at a New Jersey high school is seen on video being assaulted by members of his own team. The incident happened around 9 p.m. last Wednesday outside Malcolm X. Shabazz High School on Johnson Avenue in Newark.

“The officers reportedly observed four members of the team assaulting the victim after they exited a bus upon returning from a basketball game in Livingston” reported WABC.

“Our detectives are investigating this incident to identify and to appropriately charge those individuals involved” the city’s public safety director Anthony Ambrose said. “Because high school students are typically juveniles, the names of the suspects will not be released. But those found to have participated in this senseless act of violence will face criminal charges.”

There have not been any reports on arrests. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said, “The actions of these students will not be tolerated, and they don’t represent the majority of the school. The school and team have many great kids, who go on to college and do great things, and we’re proud of them. We support the superintendent and principal and will do whatever we can to make the rest of the year successful.”

WABC reported that “the video was shared across social media throughout the entire student body and most said they were embarrassed by the behavior shown in the video.”

“It’s kind of embarrassing,” student Nashawn Holmes said. “We should be getting seen for better things like our community, our teams.”
