Parents in Oklahoma City are horrified after a 10-year-old girl claims she was raped in a school bathroom by a brother-sister duo.
Police are now investigating the alleged assault at Edgemere Elementary School.
According to KFOR-TV, the girl's mother says she was waiting in the pickup line for her daughter after school recently when the child came running out crying and shaking.
"She came out with her knees and hands shaking and crying," the mortified mother told the station. "I jumped out of the car and asked her what was wrong and she said 'Mama, they touched me down there.'"
The 10-year-old said she had gone to the restroom, and that's when a female classmate of hers and the classmate's brother began their assault.
"The little boy pulled his pants down, pulled her pants down," said the mother, who indicated the sister held her daughter down while the 8-year-old brother raped her.
Once police were called, the family was brought to the hospital where a rape exam was conducted.
The station notes medical paperwork confirms the girl's wounds are consistent with sexual assault.
"I'm not just blaming the kids," the girl's mother said. "I blame the teachers that are supposed to protect our kids when they're at school."
The Oklahoma City School District says it notified the police immediately after hearing about the alleged sexual assault.
