Police in Oklahoma City are investigating an alleged sexual assault at an elementary school after a 10-year-old girl said she was held down by a female classmate while the classmate’s 8-year-old brother raped her.
The victim’s mother was waiting in the pick-up line outside of Edgemere Elementary school when the girl ran out to tell her what had happened, according to KFOR 4, Oklahoma City.
According to the girl’s mother, the victim was crying as she ran out to the car.
“She came out with her knees and hands shaking and crying,” said the girl’s mother who was not identified. “I jumped out of the car and asked her what was wrong and she said ‘mama they touched me down there.’”
According to the girl she went to the bathroom after the school day ended, where she was confronted by a 10-year old classmate and her 8-year-old bother.
“The little boy pulled his pants down, pulled her pants down.” said the mother, adding that the sister held the victim down while her younger brother raped her.
The mother said that her daughter screamed, but was told that if she wasn’t quiet she would be beaten up.
“She said ‘it’s two of them mama, so I listened,’” the mother said.
Police were called and escorted the girl and her mother to the hospital where a rape exam was conducted confirming injuries consistent with a sexual assault.
The victim’s mother said of the assault that there is blame to go around.
“I’m not blaming just the kids,” she said. “I blame the teachers, the people who are supposed to protect our kids when they’re at school.’
