Assault on School Bus 26 Mar 12

A 5-year-old girl was allegedly assaulted by two 8-year-old boys on a New Ulm school bus last week.

School officials say that the boys apparently pulled the girl into the back of the bus and demanded that she take off her pants. They reportedly bit her when she did not comply.

The boys were suspended from the bus for 5 days. School officials say the school district cannot comment on what other punishment they may have received.

The victim was given an alternate bus route.

The girl’s mother has reportedly stated that she will be contacting a lawyer.
