STAMFORD - A Stamford High School employee was discharged from Stamford Hospital Saturday night after police say he was brutally assaulted.

Police say 63-year-old Victor Eng was attacked by four juveniles walking on Prospect Street during his lunch hour on Tuesday, leaving him with a broken neck and a fractured spine. Police say the incident appears to be a random attack, similar to those seen in the “knockout game.”

Guidance Counselor Bobby Augustine says the entire school community is in shock because administrator Eng is a legendary figure at the school.

Police arrested a 15-year-old student from Stamford Academy and charged him with first-degree assault on an elderly person. They expect more arrests to follow.
