Teenager Syrian refugee girl in school bathroom by another girl who wanted to vape inside the stall she was in
The video shows the victim walking out of the stall when she's confronted by another teenager at Chartiers Valley High School in Pennsylvania
A horrifying video of a teenage Syrian refugee being kicked inside a high school bathroom by a bullying blonde girl has emerged online. Reports state that the 14-year-old victim was attacked because the bully wanted to vape inside the stall that was occupied by the girl.
The video, which was posted on Facebook on Saturday by Alexis Work, a high school senior at Chartiers Valley High School in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, shows the victim walking out of the stall when she's confronted by the other teenager.
Although it is not clear what the two girls are saying at the beginning of the video, at one point the teenager in the lavender sweater can be heard threatening the hijab-wearing victim: "You're lucky you're from another language because I will crush you b***h," the girl can be heard yelling.
She then pushes the victim backwards into the stall and starts hitting her in the head, after which the victim can be heard yelling: "I'm not punching you, you punched me first."
The victim tries to hit back but the girl in the lavender sweater continues to attack as the Syrian girl screams: "Leave me alone."
The clip eventually ends with the person recording the incident walking out of the bathroom. However, according to Work, the fight continued even after the video ended and the victim suffered a concussion and severe bruising.
Work, while talking to WTAE, said that the attacker "is suspended from school until Thursday and has a court hearing on Thursday, in which the school is going to attempt to expel her."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is reportedly now calling for a state and federal investigation because the student who was attacked is Muslim and the council believes that the incident was a hate crime.
The Collier Township police, which is investigating the incident, however, has ruled out hate crime as the motive. Collier Police Chief Craig said that criminal charges are pending.
