The suspect’s mother, Donadeen Russell-
Police said while they were sorting out the situation, they couldn’t let the mother have access to her daughter who is accused of a very serious assault.
“She’s had fights before you know, when she said she’s defending herself, but not to this degree where she’s literally stabbed somebody like this,” Russell-Fongchoy said.
Russell-Fongchoy told reporters, her 13-year-old daughter has autism and has been planning to enroll in an individual education plan or IEP. she was confused about why her daughter was even allowed scissors under her condition.
“My child has autism, she has ADHD, she has an IEP. The IEP states she’s not supposed to have access to any knife, scissors, anything, no cutting instrument, so who was supervising my child in the building?” Russell-Fongchoy asked.
School officials said they cannot comment on why the student had access because the incident is still under investigation. But they said the injured student is being treated for her injuries.
