BOSTON —An investigation is underway in Boston after a girl whose mother said was bullied since the start of the school year was attacked by a group of students. The attack was caught on video.
The attack happened Monday at the Young Achievers School in Mattapan, a pilot school for students from kindergarten through eighth grade that focuses on science and math.
The video starts by showing a group of black students chastising the white girl, and then, as the girl begins to walk away from the group, she is attacked by several juveniles. In the video, the victim is seen getting her hair pulled, punched and kicked in the head.
The girl’s mother said the assault goes on for several minutes before an adult stepped in.
