Anti-bullying hero attacked

U.S. & World

MECKLENBURG COUNTY, VA (WWBT) A Virginia high school student faces felony robbery and malicious wounding charges after a fight with a middle school student on a school bus.

Justin Writtenberry, 12, of La Crosse, suffered a broken nose and a concussion during the fight.

This happened one day after Writtenberry received a “positive behavior” award from Park View Middle School for helping stop a bullying situation.

“A kid was being picked on and he was in the bathroom crying,” Writtenberry said. “Another student and I walked him through the steps of how to feel better and so it wouldn’t happen to him.”

The middle schooler said he didn’t want to fight on the bus, but claims when the high schooler took his glasses he fought back.

“I remember him snatching my glasses and I went to retrieve them and then he hit me and that’s when things went down,” Writtenberry said.
