QUITMAN, AR (KAIT/KARK) - A mother is upset after her 6-year-old son was molested by another student on a Quitman School District bus.
The mother said she got the information from Quitman Elementary School on Jan. 11, according to a report from Little Rock NBC affiliate KARK.
"The bus driver on the [school bus] seen that my son and another little boy had a jacket over their laps and the other little boy had his hands in my sons pants," the mother said.
The mother asked the school district to remove the 2nd grader from the bus, but after a three-day suspension, the boy was back on that bus.
The mother does not want to press charges or point fingers, but she wants the child to get the help he needs and to make sure they're not forced to be around each other.
The Quitman School District issued a statement on Facebook that reads:
The 2nd grader is only allowed to sit with his siblings. He and his siblings have been interviewed by the Arkansas Department of Human Services and additional interviews will be conducted by the Children's Advocacy Center.
