BAMBERG, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT)– Parents of a 5 year-old girl are furious. They say security video, taken on a Bamberg school bus, shows her being hit. Now, the 17-year-old accused of hitting her has a warrant out for his arrest. Jasmine’s parents want to know why the high school student was allowed to ride the bus in the first place.
Terry Peters says he immediately noticed the mark on his little girl’s face when he picked her up from after school care on Thursday. “I’m very upset! I’m mad,” Peters said.
He says the daycare workers told him 17 year old Tavon Walters, a high school student, hit his daughter on the bus ride from the schools to the after school program. “He had reached over that seat and telling another girl if you don’t hit her then I’m going to hit her for you,” the father said.
The bus security video shows Walters grabbing another student’s hand and using it to hit Jasmine on the right side of her face. The picture of the mark on Jasmine’s face is on the left side which is why school officials and police are unclear if the teen is responsible for the actual mark in the picture.
