STAMFORD - A sophomore from Westhill High School in Stamford says he was attacked by bullies at school today and required stitches in his head and hand.

The 15-year-old student, who did not want to show his face or use his name, says 10 classmates who've been taunting him for years jumped him in the boys? bathroom. The student?s parents say they've complained to school officials in the past to no avail.

School officials say the incident, which left a second student with non-life threatening injuries, was captured on video and police are in the process of reviewing the footage.

Police say they are investigating, but it's too early for them to comment.
