CLAYTON COUNTY (WAOK) — A Clayton County mother says nearly 20 girls attacked her and and her 13-year-old twin daughters after she tried to get school officials to deal with the gang of girls that had been harassing her daughters.
Charnetta Davis says she was trying to get her daughters, Kyra and Tyra, out of harm’s way on May 20 after being followed to their home by the group of girls. She attempted to call police but could not finish dialing before the fight ensued.
“Before I could even dial the numbers, they just attacked,” said Davis. “They were punching us, kicking us and I was pleading for someone to stop and help us.”
Davis now wears a knee brace and a corrective boot to help her heal from her injuries. She says her daughter Tyra was hurt the worst.
“She was lying on the ground. They had her by the shirt and were twisting her shirt like they were trying to choke her while someone was smashing her face,” said Davis.
Davis says her daughters enrolled in North Clayton Middle School in January. Soon after, the harassment began from the group of girls. She says she tried to tell school officials, but nothing was done.
“I’ve never in my life experienced anything like this before,” says Davis. “I feel like I’ve done everything that I could to help my daughters.”
