It is unclear where exactly the alleged attack took place. City Council 2021 candidate Yi Chen, who shared the images online, said Emma did not receive medical treatment following the incident.
Emma was recently diagnosed with PTSD and remains in “a lot of pain,” Chen noted. But she may not be alone as there have been other bullying allegations at George J. Ryan Junior High School.
“Despite several witnesses’ accounts, the incident was neglected and not fairly treated by the school till today,” Chen wrote on Sunday. “It is also reported that there have been two or three other bullying [incidents] in the school.”
Activists and community members are planning to hold a rally in front of the school at 64-20 175th St. at 1:30 p.m. today.
