Seattle police and school-district officials said Wednesday they have nothing to validate recent bullying and sexual-harassment claims made by a 12-year-old Denny Middle School girl, who could face felony assault charges for allegedly knocking a boy unconscious with a backpack earlier this week.
The girl involved had not previously communicated to the school or the school district that she had been bullied or harassed, said Seattle Public Schools spokesman David Tucker.
School principal Jeff Clark also sent a letter to parents Wednesday, which in part stated “some media reports regarding this incident are not consistent with the facts as we currently understand them to be.” Full story.
