"It makes me sick."

A new video of Philadelphia street attacks has surfaced—and this time the teen perps are students from a charter school that received a $1 million donation from Oprah Winfrey, according to Fox 29, which obtained the footage.

The incident occurred July 29—the same day flash mob attacks took place in another section of the city—just blocks from Mastery Charter High School. Students in the video face expulsion or suspension, school officials wrote in a letter to residents in the area where the attack took place.

Sources told Fox 29 that man attacked in the video was hospitalized with injuries to his head and teeth. No charges have been filed so far, police told Fox 29.

"It makes me sick," said Mastery CEO Scott Gordon."We're very very upset about it, that any student, but particularly a student that's been in a Mastery school, would behave like that, to think that that's okay, is very disturbing."

Mastery's parent company received $1 million from Winfrey last September as part of her Angel Network.
