Canada Girl, 13, faces criminal charge in school bullying case

A 13-year-old girl has been charged with criminal harassment following allegations of ongoing bullying at a St. Thomas, Ont., elementary school.

The girl was arrested Sunday after another 13-year-old complained of being harassed to the point where she didn't want to go to school.

The alleged victim told police that when she did go to school she was afraid she would get assaulted.

St. Thomas police say the alleged bully would take the girl's belongings and give them to other people.

The accused can't be named under Youth Criminal Justice Act, nor can the school be named in order to protect the identity of the victim.
