UNION CITY, Calif. (KLTA) -- A mother is recovering after she says two teenage girls brutally beat her up outside a Union City high school this week while she went to talk to the principal about bullying, KTLA sister station KRON in San Francisco reported Jan. 10.
Maria Guadalupe Jimenez, who just gave birth to a baby girl four months ago, spent two nights in the hospital after the incident at James Logan High School.
Her 16-year-old daughter goes to school at James Logan and told them she was being bullied by a group of girls.
On Jan. 7, she and her husband drove their daughter to school and wanted to go inside to speak to the principal about the bullying. They say the girls met them outside and began throwing punches.
The Union City Police Department say they responded to the scene and arrested one juvenile, who was charged with battery with serious bodily injury.
The school district says the fight involved two Logan High School students — a student’s family and someone not from the school.
According to the family, the bullying began about a year ago and happened on campus and online.
