APS middle schooler faces charges after classroom attack

- Charges will be filed against the female student who attacked a 13-year-old 8th grader inside Price Middle School Thursday.

Leticia Gray told FOX 5's Portia Bruner school police officers are still investigating the incident, but have already concluded the student will be charged. The decision, she says, is based in part on the cell phone video recorded during the attack.

"It's horrible what they did to my baby," said this girl's mother, Nadia Mack

Mack showed FOX 5 News the video that students shared with her after the fight. It depicts a brutal assault with the 13-year-old being pushed back across her desk and dragged to the ground where she was repeatedly punched.

"My daughter had her hair ripped out of her head and she was pummeled and stomped on and punched. This girl should be under the jail," the Southeast Atlanta mother said shortly after her daughter was released from the hospital Friday.

Her daughter, who asked to remain.  anonymous, Bruner her attacker has picked on her a few times over the last couple of weeks.

"She would touch me and I would tell her to stop and she would pull my hair and I would tell her to stop. Yesterday, she just told me she wanted to fight me. I could hear all the kids screaming at her to get off of me," the girl said.

Her mother hopes the girl is expelled from Price Middle School and arrested too soon.

"That kid looked like she was trying to kill my daughter. What were her intentions? The only motive here is bullying and I will not send my daughter back to that school," Mack said.
