Police said Thursday that a junior high school student in Hiroshima has been arrested after he allegedly broke a classmate’s back in June.

According to police, the 15-year-old boy was with four friends in a school corridor on June 22 during recess when several of them picked up the victim, TBS reported. The youth then allegedly kneed him in the back. Police say the boy suffered a broken bone in his lower back.

Following the alleged assault, the school principal publicly apologized for failing to protect the boy. The school subsequently distributed a questionnaire to students, the results of which suggested that the victim had been bullied regularly by his assailant.

The boy and his parents filed a complaint with police on July 17. The arrested youth denies any intent to harm the victim, TBS reported.
