(CBS) – A father says instead of his son being treated as a hero for preventing a bully from attacking another student, he was suspended.

The Elmwood Park family says they are outraged over the schools decision.

CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reports there’s a stir in the halls of Elmwood Park over what happened to Mark Rivera.

“It’s a really small community so I really can’t stand for someone to be bullied in a community it’s so small,” said Mark.

The football player just back after wrapping a suspension for confronting a bully, he says he sat and had a conversation with him before walking away.

“He said some comments so I turned back and I took a step forward,” Rivera said.

That, per the report, was physically assaultive, resulting in a suspension.
