CLAIRTON, Pa.,None —

A local mother is upset after she said her 10-year-old daughter was attacked after getting off her school bus in Clairton.

Laura Farmer said her daughter got off the bus and was walking down Gary Avenue toward her home when she was attacked by an 11-year-old boy.

Farmer said her daughter, a fifth-grader at Clairton Education Center, suffered a concussion and had to be taken to the emergency room.

"He beat her with a stick and threw rocks at her head," Farmer said.

Farmer said she called the school district and they told her there was nothing that could be done cause it didn't happen on school property.

"I feel upset because there's more the school could do," Farmer said.

The school's administrative office said a student's trip from their home to the bus stop and from the bus stop to their home is the responsibility of the parent.

The boy, whose name has not been released, has been charged with disorderly conduct, police said.

Farmer said her daughter is afraid it will happen again and just wants the boy to stop.
