Brooklyn, NY - A teenaged high school student who is free on bail after being charged in a New Year's Eve assault and robbery that left a 55-year-old man needing 70 stitches has returned to Midwood High School in Brooklyn without any notification to teachers or students by school administrators. ( reports that 17 year-old Eldin Sabovic was charged with stealing the victim's cell phone and wallet in the year-end stick-up while his 19-year-old accomplice beat the man, leaving him with a massive forehead gash.

A Midwood HS source reported that at least one student said her parents would have held her out of school had they known Sabovic was roaming the halls.

Greg Floyd, who heads up the Teamsters union that represents school safety officers, said, "This is wrong. This student should be taught in an alternative setting, not mingling with students at Midwood HS."
