State police say a Connellsville Area School District elementary school student faces assault charges in juvenile court for allegedly attacking two other girls on a school bus, one of whom suffered a concussion and a broken nose.
Troopers from the Belle Vernon barracks did not name the girls.
A school security official says they were 11 and 12 years old and attended Dunbar Elementary, a K-6 school.
District security director Michael Parlak says criminal charges will be filed with the Fayette County juvenile probation office once his investigation is completed. He says he’s waiting for medical records and other information.
Parlak says the girls could face suspensions under the school’s disciplinary policy.
