Dad Gets Restraining Order Against 5-Year-Old Accused Of Bullying Daughter
(CBS) – A Wisconsin father has taken out a restraining order against a 5-year old boy who he claims has been bullying his 6-year-old daughter.
WBBM Newsradio’s Dave Berner reports Brian Metzger said his daughter was threatened and attacked by one of her classmates at Prairie Lane Elementary School in Pleasant Prairie. He said his daughter used to love kindergarten, but doesn’t want to go to school anymore.
He told WISN-TV his daughter told him the boy said, “I want to slit your throat and watch you bleed.”
Metzger said his daughter has been harassed by the boy for the whole school year, but the school failed to protect his daughter.
“I think they should have done something a lot sooner. They’ve kept him in the same classroom as my daughter throughout this, until Wednesday morning,” he said.
Metzger filed a police report alleging his daughter was kicked in the face, and had rocks and sand thrown at her. He also obtained a temporary restraining order against the boy.
The school has since taken the boy out of the girl’s classroom. Metzger said he wants the boy thrown out of school altogether.
Kenosha Unified School District spokeswoman Tanya Ruder declined to discuss specifics of the case, but said “There’s always two sides to every story.”
A hearing on the restraining order has been scheduled for Tuesday.
