McDonough, Ga. – Authorities are investigating an attack on a 6-year-old girl in an elementary school bathroom in Henry County, Georgia.

Deputies say the little girl was attacked by a girl twice her age. The older student reportedly choked her, put her head in the toilet several times and hit her head on the toilet, according to FOX 5. FOX 5 reports that a teacher intervened after hearing a commotion.

The 5th-grader was charged in juvenile court and the school district is investigating, according to WXIA.

The child’s father, Jeremy Tackett, told FOX 5, “You send your kids to school to get an education; they should not have to worry about getting pulled into the bathroom and getting pummeled by somebody almost twice their age.”

The family is taking all of their children out of the school.

    Use a buddy system with each student to prevent situations like this. Isn’t there separate bathrooms for each grade level?

    That 5th grader needs a switch taken to her til she learns not to beat up little kids. How crappy of a parent do you have to be to raise a girl old enough to be in 5th grade that thinks it’s fine to beat up six year olds?

        You’re kidding right? Or are you too stupid to realize that punishment administered in the right way is a deterrent to bad behavior in a a child. A spanking never hurt anyone for long, but it sure makes them think before they do something mean and stupid. And as ANON said, a switch on that 12 year old’s ass would make her take another look at her actions. You must be a piss poor parent, IF you are a parent at all.

          Walter obviously likes to hit children and bully people with name calling. Way to go Walter. I’m guessing that you are on the older side of 50? Your ways will be taken to the grave with your outdated generations.

    Oh wow this is horrible. If this child can do this to someone so young.. can you imagine what she will be doing when she is 18, with such anger issues. I always worry that children that are this violent at around 12-13. Maybe cant be rehabilitated. I hope this poor baby is going to be ok. mentally and physically.
