A second-grader was beaten so severely by classmates Wednesday, he was transported to an area hospital for care.
A group of second-graders reportedly ganged up on the boy on their school bus, then followed the boy off the bus and kept beating him, a Scott County sheriff’s deputy said.
Deputy Joshua Bedson said the boy, also a second-grader, was assaulted as the bus approached and entered Spindletop Mobile Home Park off Lisle Road about 2:45 p.m.
The boy, who has not been identified, was taken to Georgetown Community Hospital by Georgetown-Scott County Emergency Medical Services. No report on the boy’s condition was availble at press time.
The driver of the bus, identified as Bus No. 36, allowed the boys to get off the bus with the victim at the intersection of Mulholland Drive and Dale Drive, then allowed them back on, several parents at the scene said.
“They were getting off the bus, beating on him,” said parent Janie Schmidt.

CARROLL COUNTY, Ky. (Angenette Levy) — A trio of 13-year-old girls are charged with assault and complicity for planning an attack on another student on a Carroll County school bus. Emily Penn Foster, 13, was riding home on the bus last Friday when she said one of the girls asked her a question. She asked me if I still liked a guy and I told her yes, Penn Foster said. Moments later, Emily said one girl punched her in the face. Cell phone video of the attack shows a second girl grabbing her hair and punching her in the back for more than 20 seconds.
