A 7-year-old boy was arrested after a school fight, not for fighting, but for sexual harassment! The boy, who is in first grade, got into a fight with a classmate on a school bus. The boy’s mother claims that he was sticking up for himself and the school district has confirmed that they will be investigating the fight for sexual harassment for one certain reason. Hit the jump to find out why.
A Boston first-grader is being investigated for possible sexual harassment for punching another boy in the groin following a school bus fight, according to a report from MyFoxBoston.com.
Tasha Lynch, the mother of the boy, says her son was acting in self-defense after the victim allegedly choked him on a school bus and stole his gloves.
Lynch says her 7-year-old son was merely trying to protect himself, MyFoxBoston.com reports.
A spokesman for the Boston school system confirmed that an investigation was indeed underway, but would not discuss details of the incident, including why it had been classified as a sexual assault.
Lynch says her son is only being investigated because he punched the other boy in the groin. She argues that the other boy should be charged with attempted murder for choking her son.
