Allen told WUSA9 that while one boy covered her mouth, another put her hands behind her back and a third boy cut her hair while using offensive language toward her.
According to Allen, this trio of boys have bullied her for some time. Her family pays $12,000 for her to attend the school where Karen Pence, the wife of the current vice-president Mike Pence, teaches part-time.
Immanuel Christian School issued a statement that read:
“We take seriously the emotional and physical well-being of all our students, and have a zero-tolerance policy for any kind of bullying or abuse. We are deeply disturbed by the allegations being made, and are in communication with the family of the alleged victim to gather information and provide whatever support we can.
