(ST. JOHNS) - A couple is suing their northwest Indiana school district, claiming it failed to protect their son from prolonged bullying over his Middle Eastern background that culminated in an attack that left him with a brain injury.

Osama and Hind Haddad contend in their lawsuit filed Monday that officials at Lake Central High School in St. John knew their son, David Osama Haddad, was being bullied but didn't act.

Hind Haddad says her son suffered a traumatic brain injury in the Nov. 8 beating in a school hallway and is having trouble with his vision and balance.

St. John Police Chief Fred Frego said Tuesday that his department is investigating and that charges could come within days.
