A 12-year-old female was charged Tuesday by the Stamford Police Department's Special Investigations Juvenile division for her involvement in the bullying of a 13-year-old private middle school.
On September 20, 2013, the parents of the 13-year-old student contacted Stamford Police saying another child had been harassing their daughter so badly at school, their daughter was now making comments about committing suicide. School administration was notified and the school and police began a joint investigation.
Special Investigations Officer Silas Redd worked with administrators to investigate the claims of bullying and determined them to be founded. He determined arresting the 12-year-old would be the proper route to quell the activity.
The child was taken into custody, charged with disorderly conduct and released into the custody of her parents.
Stamford Police issued a warning that this type of activity would not be tolerated, especially in a learning environment, and any instances of bullying brought to their attention would be vigorously investigated and arrests would be made when appropriate.
