They were beating him, kicking him, punching him in the face many, many times," Ulysse's father, Pierre Ulysse, said at a news conference Tuesday.
The eighth-grader says he was beaten up by a pair of seventh-graders who shouted insults and slurs at him, including "transvestite" and "gay," according to the report put out by the Department of Education.
One classmate pinned Kardin Ulysse down while the other punched him repeatedly. The fight continued in the cafeteria until it was broken up by school safety officers and school aides, according to the boy.
