COLUMBIA, Md. -- A man wearing a ski mask tried to assault a student at a Howard County school but got knocked out himself.
Howard County schools spokeswoman Patti Caplan said Long Reach High School was dismissing students Wednesday when the man arrived on campus. Caplan said the man tried to assault a student, a junior on the school's football team, but missed. The football player punched the man, knocking him out.
The 29-second video viewed by hundreds of thousands on WorldStarHipHop.com shows teachers and school staff quickly descending upon the scene to contain the situation. The man was seen on the ground, but he ultimately left the school grounds.
"I think it's ridiculous that an adult would come up and have a confrontation with a student. That's something that should be taken up with the parents or the staff here at the school," said Cathy Geipe, a parent
