LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
After watching her son sucker punch an unsuspecting teen in a video on Facebook, Donna Hernandez wants the world to know she shares the blame for his actions.
"I'm so sorry that this was posted and more sorry for the hurt that was caused to the boy in the video," Hernandez wrote on her own Facebook page. "There is no reason for that kind of behavior, my son [will] be punished."
Clark County School Police said Friday that two suspects would be charged with battery in connection with the attack. Although they did not release any names, two of the boys in the video appear to be Hernandez's sons, Malachi and Benjamin Luna.
The suspects attend Roy Martin Middle School, according to police, although it's unknown where the attack took place.
The identity of the victim is also unknown. Several people who emailed the video to FOX5 said the boy's name was Greg and he is a special-needs student.
Wanda Arceneaux, who said her sons - Kendrick and Cedric - were present during the attack told FOX5 she's received anonymous threatening calls since the video went viral.
"They say that they know where I live, they're coming for me, they're going to kill Kendrick and Cedric and they're going to blow my house up," Arceneaux said.
Students at Roy Martin believe those boys who made the video's older sibling are also involved.
Classmates also identified the victim as Gregory, a special-needs student.
"They took his money I guess, and Gregory was just apologizing because he didn't know what he did though," said Rosendo Esparza, who attends Roy Martin Middle School.
Students said Gregory is known around the school for impersonating Michael Jackson, and walks to and from Roy Martin.
"He's alright, I've seen him with a napkin in his ear and I guess his ear is bleeding really bad," Esparza said.
