On Wednesday, NBC 6 acquired a video and details of another incident that occurred March 8.
Jonathan Londoño, 15, was walking through a school hallway when he was punched in the face. His nose was broken and he required surgery.
Jonathan said he was being bullied by an 18-year-old student, and that the punch occurred after he tried to stop the student from bullying another.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools said the violent incident is "considered to be an isolated, mutual fight between the students," adding that there were "no previous reports of bullying by either of the students."
MDCPS also said neither student in the incident had previous records of bullying or fighting.
Jonathan said that despite being a victim, he was suspended anyways as the school disciplined both students according to the Code of Student Conduct.
“Because I am the victim, why do I have to have the same punishment like him, if he was the person who attacked me," Jonathan said.
