UNION CITY, CALIFORNIA: A mother was ambushed and beaten to a pulp by her daughter's violent bullies while she was on her way to talk to the school principal.
Maria Jimenez was left with a broken nose and a black eye along with multiple cuts and bruises after the teenagers confronted her at the James Logan High School in Union City, California, on Tuesday.
Jiminez, her partner Eder Rojas, and their bullied 16-year-old daughter were confronted by the unnamed bullies when they arrived at the school to speak with the principal.
Recalling the incident to ABC7, Rojas said: "They started screaming at us, 'What you wanna do? Who’s going to fight first'."
Jiminez told the outlet: "The girl was very furious. They grabbed me by the hair and dragged me."
She also said the girl bully and an accomplice proceeded to punch and kick her, before throwing her to the ground and stomping on her. "I just wanted to talk to the principal. You’d never imagine a kid would hit an adult. I thought we were safe on campus," she added.
Jiminez gave birth to her youngest child just four months ago and was left so badly injured in the altercation that she had to spend two days in the hospital.
Her husband Rojas was forced to try and pull one of the girls off his wife and their teenage daughter, who was also hit.
The police were then called to the school and they charged one of the two girls with battery and serious bodily injury.
In an email statement addressed to the parents that the school sent out, they said: "We are investigating and following up on this incident working directly with the Union City Police Department, and taking disciplinary actions. We believe this incident to be between the two Logan students and does not appear to involve any other Logan students."
Jiminez is believed to have pulled her daughter from the school claiming they will find a new high school for their kid.
The family is also considering hiring an attorney for taking up legal action against the bully.
A GoFundMe page has been also been made to help with Jiminez's medical expenses.
