High school girl attacked in cafeteria
Police and rescue personnel were dispatched to Roosevelt High School at lunchtime Nov. 19 after a 14-year-old girl was attacked by a 17-year girl, a neighbor and fellow student.
The two had been friends until last summer, when circumstances ended their friendship. The 17-year-old, the alleged aggressor, said that name calling by the younger girl’s family triggered the latest animosity.
The younger girl’s parents said they wanted to press charges. They took their daughter to Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital for treatment, where a detective joined them to take photos of the girl’s injuries.
