Mom attacked by teen girls after confrontation over bullied daughter


(KYMA, KECY)- A northern California mother said she was attacked by a group of teen girls that were bullying her daughter.

ABC 7 reports the mother is recovering from an attack on the campus of her daughter's high school.

The mother, Maria Jimenez was treated by paramedics Tuesday after stating her family was attacked by two James Logan High School teenage girls.

According to ABC 7, "They started screaming at us, 'What you wanna do? Who's going to fight first,'" said parent Eder Rojas.

Rojas said one of the girls had been bullying his 16-year-old daughter. Eder said he tried pulling the teen off his wife and daughter who was also hit.

They were at the school to complain to the principal but were confronted by the teens before they made it through the front door.

After police responded to the scene, one of the teenagers was arrested and charged with battery with serious bodily injury.

The mother was hospitalized for two days due to the beating and is seeking justice.

The school sent an email to parents, which said in part:

"We are investigating and following up on this incident working directly with the Union City Police Department, and taking disciplinary actions. We believe this incident to be between the two Logan students and does not appear to involve any other Logan students."
