A California mom says she was beaten bloody and left with a broken nose by a group of teenage girls who had been bullying her girl.
Parents Maria Guadalupe Jimenez and Eder Rojas moved to James Logan High School in Union City with their 16-year-old girl on Tuesday to speak with the principal regarding the bullies, media reported.
But the girl gang purportedly accosted the family outside — and started pummeling the mom.
“They started screaming at us, ‘What you wanna do? Who’s going to fight first,’ ” Rojas told the outlet.
Jimenez remembered through a translator how one of the teens “was furious” and how she was “grabbed by the hair and pulled.”
The father said he tried to pull the teens off of his spouse and daughter, who was also hit.
Jimenez — who had a baby only four months ago — suffered injuries to her face from being punched and kicked, and her nose was broken, according to the outlet.
She was in the hospital for two days.
“I simply wanted to talk to the principal,” she said. “You’d never imagine a kid would hit an adult. I thought we were safe on campus.”
Union City Police caught one of the teens, charging her with battery with severe bodily injury.
The school said the administration is investigating the event, and the school is “taking disciplinary steps.”
The family told the bullying started about a year ago and happened on campus and online.
They are now intending on moving their daughter to a different school and hiring an attorney.
A GoFundMe account was set up to support pay for the mom’s medical costs.
