Carrboro family to press charges against student for bullying children

Posted: Updated:
CARRBORO, N.C. - A Carrboro family says they are pressing charges against an elementary school student after their two kids have been bullied by another student for months.

The students go to Frank Porter Graham Elementary in Chapel Hill.

The family says after months of complaints. the principal agreed to an investigation and to sit them down with the other child's parent. But when that did not happen, they decided to turn to police.

“That’s why we were waiting and hoping that the school will take some kind of position in this and put a stop to it because we understand this is no ideal for the other family to have criminal charges against their son and their future, but we’re left with no options right now,” said Alvona Bogdanova, the mother.

She called it a “complete disregard from school” and the family was “left on our own from this point.”

The school system has said the situation is more complex than it seems.

The family said the principal told them it was two-sided and did not meet the definition of bullying.

The father said that investigators with the school system spoke to his son about the reported bullying and have begun an investigation into the situation.

The central office contacted the father of the bullied boy to set up a meeting with the family of the bully. That meeting is set for May 12.

Chapel Hill Police did not immediately return calls for comment.
