The officers noticed two adults assaulting a student. The officers separated the student and the adults to stop the assault.

Police say an argument ensued between the school officers and the adults. One of the adults then pushed and shoved the officers. The officers began defending themselves, and a total of three adults assaulted the officers.

When it ended, the males ran away and the officers were left in need of medical assistance.

"It's very disturbing; you have adults that are not only about to assault students, but they also get into a fight with our school police officers," School District of Philadelphia spokesman Fernando Gallard said.

The district says neither officer was armed.
