DECATUR — Officials forthe DeKalb County School District say a group of older students boarded a bus and attacked elementary school students inside, sending one to the hospital.
A statement from district obtained by news outlets says two middle school students, one high school student and an 18-year-old non-student are accused of assaulting younger students onboard the bus on the morning of November 18. Officials said the bus was about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from Snapfinger Elementary.
The statement says district police obtained warrants for the high school student and the 18-year-old. The two middle schoolers were transported to juvenile intake.
WSB-TV reports officials sent a voicemail to parents Monday saying the group of older students boarded the bus “to assault an elementary school student.”
At press time, the hospitalized student’s condition hasn’t been released.
