Felix Leonardo Nuna, Peru School Headmaster, Assaulted By Students And Parents (VIDEO)

A Lima high school became a mob scene when angry students and parents assaulted a headmaster they say stole money and getting drunk on the premises.

As CBS is reporting, police officers guarding National Vitarte high school were unable to fend off the angry crowd, who smashed windows and broke doors before entering headmaster Felix Leonardo Nuna's office and dragging him to the school's patio.

"It is pure drunkenness," said one teacher, who added that Nuna has created "complete disorder" in the five years he has served as headmaster. "There are no controls over the incoming money. He doesn't want to report on the costs the school faces." Students echoed those sentiments. "He steals money," said one. "He doesn't do anything, he steals money."

Nuna, who was flogged and assaulted, has vehemently denied the accusations, though it is not known if he would return to the school.
