MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A 15-year-old Hillsboro high school student is in the hospital after sustaining a head injury due to an alleged assault from another student.

According to the Hillsboro Police Department, officers responded to Hillsboro High School on April 29 after receiving information about an altercation. During their investigation, it was determined that a 17-year-old student had assaulted a 15-year-old student between classes in the hallway.

Surveillance video revealed that the 17-year-old walked up behind the student who was standing looking in a locker and punched him in the head, an HPD statement said.
