A 7-year-old boy at South Boston’s Tynan Elementary School is under investigation for sexual harassment after he struck a boy in the groin, The Boston Globe reports.
The boy’s mother, Tasha Lynch, says her son, Mark Curran, was only defending himself after the other boy allegedly choked Curran on a school bus Nov. 22.
"I think my kid was right to fight back," Lynch toldThe Globe. "He wasn’t doing anything except protecting himself."
Lynch describes the alleged incident further to Boston’s WBZ.
"He just all of a sudden came up to him, choked him," Lynch said of the November 22 incident. "He wanted to take his gloves, and my son said, ‘I couldn’t breathe, so I kicked him in the testicles."
