The incident allegedly occurred last week Tuesday, August 26th.

The girl's mother says school officials won't confirm an actual attack took place.

Police are apparently not investigating the incident -- saying there is no indication anything criminal took place, and the school says no other children were involved in the incident. reports a police lieutenant says he has spoken with school security -- saying an assistant superintendant is investigating.

Harris says her daughter has told her she was attacked, but because no teachers were there to witness it, there is no proof another student was involved.
