Police searching for 2 women who stabbed kid at school bus stop

- A search continues Friday for a mother and her adult daughter who Atlanta Public Schools Police said stabbed a student while he was waiting for a school bus. 

School officials said it started with an argument between students and ended when one of the boys had to be rushed to the hospital. 

Timothy is a 7th grader at Bunche Middle School. He said he was waiting for the school bus at his usual stop on Mt. Gilead Road when he got into an argument with a 6th-grade boy.  

Timothy says that's when the other boy's mother, Taza Harris and the boy's 24-year old sister, Chelsea Harris started yelling at him.  

Timothy says when the bus arrived he started to get on it.

"The bus pulled up and I got on the bus and we kept arguing and they came on the bus. They pulled out a knife and stabbed me," said Timothy.

The bus driver called the police. Timothy was taken to the hospital. 

Warrants were issued for the mother and daughter. Atlanta Public Schools Police are actively searching for them, but have not been able to find Taza and Chelsea Harris.

Timothy said he hasn't seen the other boy since the attack Friday morning. 

Timothy's aunt said she wants them caught and in custody as soon as possible.

"Why would someone grown hit a child and jump on the bus and cut him and stab him? It makes me upset they haven't found them yet," she said. 

The principal at Bunche Middle School sent home a letter to parents explaining what happened and stating that the other "students who were not involved in the altercation continue on the bus and arrived at school on time. At no time during the altercation were any other students endangered."
