(KOB)A 12-year-old Albuquerque, New Mexico boy says a schoolyard game ended with his principal slamming his head against a wall over and over again.

The boy says he was just trying to alert adults about a problem at recess when the principal took it out on him.

It happened on Friday and the boy was taken to the hospital.

His family says they even filed a police report with Albuquerque Public Schools on Friday. 

But APS tells KOB the principal is still on the job because witnesses are still being interviewed and the report is not ready.
