Cellphone video captured a brutal beating at a public school in Clark County, Nevada, last week in which a female student attacked another female student from behind and landed more than 30 punches on her head.

What are the details?

The clip shows the attacker charging at the victim — who's sitting at a desk — from the rear of the classroom and repeatedly punching her in the head.

A decidedly meek voice — perhaps from a teacher — implores the attacker to “stop, stop, stop” and "get off of her" as a pair of hands vainly attempts to prevent more punches from being thrown.

But the person who attempts to intervene soon gives up as several students are heard giggling in the background.

At this point the victim — who initially had both hands trying to protect the back of her head — slumps down on the desk as her left hand goes limp.

But the attacker wasn't through.

Likely running out of steam with her left fist, the attacker switches to her right fist and continues pounding the victim's head as audible thuds are heard, presumably from the impact of her skull banging against the desk's surface.

After approximately 36 punches to the victim's head and one weak attempt at stopping the assault, the attacker walks away as the victim stays motionless.

According to KTNV-TV, it's not clear what injuries the victim suffered or what condition she was in.

Here's the clip:

What happened next?

Clark County School District Police on Wednesday were called to Las Vegas High School to break up an apparent fight that left one female student injured, Lt. Bryan Zink told the Las Vegas Sun.

A video showing the incident later was posted to social media, the paper said, adding that the female student shown instigating the fight was cited for battery.

Zink said further charges may be added, but police were waiting to hear from the parent of the injured student to learn the nature of her injuries, the Sun said. The names of the students involved were not released, the paper said.

Clark County School District told KTNV it's investigating the incident — but it's not too keen on the video being online.

"We strongly encourage students and members of the community not to share footage of this incident or any other student fights," the district's statement said in part, according to the station. "Showing this video serves no purpose other than to further ridicule and embarrass the victim and embolden bullies."

KTNV said the caption for one of the videos of the beating reads, “I am only sharing this simply to bring awareness to other parents or people for that matter, on how this sad joke of a school system ACTUALLY is.”

Oh, but there's more

An unidentified 17-year-old female student was sent to the principal’s office last Monday at Legacy High School in North Las Vegas — also in the Clark County School District — when she and a principal's secretary had an exchange of words, Zink told the Sun.

With that, the girl grabbed a radio and began hitting the secretary with it, he added to the paper.

Two other school staffers tried to intervene until police arrived, Zink noted the Sun, adding that the girl was booked for battery on a school district employee, threatening to cause bodily harm on a school district employee, destruction of school property, disorderly conduct, and coercion.

Clark County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara — in response to both violent incidents — told the paper the alleged attackers would "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
