A student was attacked by men who hopped out of a car in what police say may have been a robbery attempt.

"As a father, I'm worried about this situation because you send your child to the school and not expecting this happen," he said.

The attack happened Monday morning around 6:30 at the intersection of Cricket Ridge Drive and Maybrook Crossing Drive.

Raleigh police are investigating the case as an attempted armed robbery.

ABC11 is protecting the family's identity at their request.

Dad said he was getting ready to go to work when his 14-year-old son called about his injuries.

"He got a bunch of punches in his face and he got his nose dislocated," he explained.

And one of the son's friends was dragged on the ground.

The teens weren't able to give police a good description of the attackers and nothing was stolen from them.

Dad is very concerned other neighborhood kids will also be hurt unless someone comes forward and provides police information.

"This is not just about my son," he said. "This is a red flag to all of us to start doing something about this community."

The teen is doing OK now and is back in school at Southeast Raleigh High School. Dad is driving his son to campus instead of allowing him to take the bus.
