6-Year-Old Girl Brutally Attacked In Elementary School Bathroom
One month after 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis was beaten to death in a high school bathroom in Wilmington, Delaware, a little girl was brutally attacked in the bathroom of a Georgia elementary school.
On Thursday (May 19) morning, 6-year-old Laina was attacked by a student twice her age inside the bathroom of Oakland Elementary School in McDonough.

Investigators said an older elementary student choked Lanira and submerged her head in the toilet two to three times, hitting her head on the toilet. A teacher heard the commotion and intervened.
“Older students should not be allowed to be with younger students,” said Lanira’s mother, Cheryl Tackett. “This is a problem that happens all the time in schools and we need to address it so that our younger ones are safe at school and do not have to deal with this problem.”
Lanira’s parents said she will be OK, but worry what this attack could do to their daughter emotionally.
The Tackett’s said they are pulling all five of their children out of the school. They said parents need to know what happened to their daughter to try and prevent this from happening to other students.
“People choose to ignore it, but they need to know that bullying is real and it is something that affects children,” said Jeremy Tackett.
The older elementary school girl is charged in juvenile court with false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery.
