CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina high school security guard required surgery for an eye socket injury in an attack by a student.

The Charlotte Observer reported that John Robbins was attacked Tuesday while breaking up a fight at the city’s Myers Park High School.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools law enforcement head Bud Cesena says Robbins was hit in the head by a 17-year-old male student. Cesena says officers are investigating whether a ring or something in the student’s hand increased the severity of the injury.

Cesena says a sharpened screwdriver was found in the student’s book bag after he was arrested.

Cesena says the incident began as an argument among four girls.

Robbins and others stepped in and the boy joined the dispute and hit Robbins.
