FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --
A mother and stepmother were arrested for assaulting their son's bullies. The two women, plus the 12-year-old boy are all facing charges relating to what turned into a violent confrontation back on March 17. The incident happened after school in the cafeteria. Fresno police say the two women were sick of hearing about the boy getting bullied, so they decided to confront the bullies themselves.
More than 100 people were witnesses as three carloads of people showed up to Cooper Academy and came face-to-face with two girls ages 12 and 13. Fresno police say the people were upset that the girls were bullying their family member, a 12-year-old who is a classmate of the girls.
Fresno Police Lt. Joe Gomez said, "The little boy was there, too. He wasn't involved in the fight, but clearly he pointed out the two teenagers that were allegedly causing him problems."
The boy's mother, Teri Don Johnson, and stepmother, Inez Hernandez, were arrested for assaulting the two girls, though investigators say they didn't receive any notable injuries. The boy's 15-year-old sister also got involved.
Gomez said, "The 15-year-old sister was arrested for the felony charge of conspiracy, and also she assaulted a school official who was trying to break it up - probably pushed her back or punched her - and the little boy was also arrested for the conspiracy charge."
Even though the boy was the one who claimed to be bullied, he was arrested for helping initiate the fight by his family members. Authorities say the boy had been complaining about being bullied by the girls for months and that the parents of the boy had talked to administrators about the problem but felt that nothing was being done about it.
