BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A 14-year old girl was attacked by two adults while she was in class after a security breach inside a Baltimore City school.
Two women were able to sneak inside that school to target the teen. The incident is raising concerns about just how safe students are in City schools.READ MORE: 'The School Shouldn't Be Open Right Now': Parents React To COVID-19 Outbreak At Cherry Hill Elementary Middle School
One person has been arrested after two adults got past school security to attack a student. Cell phone video captured Jada Beamon’s haunting scream as she is attacked inside her school.
The Vanguard middle schooler was in class when a fellow student and her two adult relatives burst through the door.
“They was chasing me and I was running through the hallways and through the door,” said Beamon.
The 14-year old barricaded herself inside another room but the two women pushed past teachers.
“The one girl she grabbed my hair and yanked my hair back while the other girl was banging my face,” said Beamon.
Now Beamon’s mother wants answers about how two adults managed to sneak inside a school.
“What if they had weapons? What if.. I could have been planning a funeral. In the ER,” said Prithilla Peay, Beamon’s mother.
School officials tell WJZ the two adults were buzzed inside the building after claiming they were going to another event inside the school.READ MORE: Almost 9,000 Vaccinated Marylanders Get Additional Shots Since Approval of Pfizer Booster
In a statement they say–
“At this time, there has been one arrest and the incident remains under investigation.”
Vanguard doesn’t have a school police officer. Councilman Brandon Scott says that needs to change.
“I think we’ve got to have some sort of school police assigned to these schools, especially middle and high schools because we know that’s where the problems are,” said Scott.
Beamon’s family also wants more security.
“This is bigger than jada. I don’t want this to happen at all,” said Peay.
Jada is still traumatized by what happened.
“Because I think it’s going to happen to me again,” said Beamon.
She fears she could be victimized again in a place she once felt safe.
Several teachers tried to fight off the women. One of those teachers was injured. Family members say the attack was retaliation for an altercation that happened two weeks ago.MORE NEWS: 'We're The Cure To This Situation': 9 Killed, 13 Wounded In Baltimore Over The Past Week
