Father Arrested After Confronting Daughter’s Bully
ST. LOUIS, MO- Police arrested a man after he confronts a small child on a school bus.
Malvin Crain turned himself into Collinsville Police. He’s facing charges of battery and aggravated assault. They are both class a misdemeanors. Police released Crain after he posted bond.
Police say 33-year-old Malvin Crain of Granite City reportedly grabbed the six-year-old boy by his jacket. He then pulled out his belt and threatened to attack the child if he didn’t stop bullying his daughter.
But according to the Collinsville School superintendent, Bob Green said he got word of the alleged bullying days ago. “The mother of the little girl came to the school last week and reported that there was a problem on the bus.” Green said the principal followed procedure, contacted the parent of the six-year-old, contacted the other parent and they thought it was a done deal. “This morning the father came to school, told him everything was fine we have it taken care of, and apparently the parent went to the bus stop.”
When asked why the adult was allowed on the bus in the first place, he repeated what the bus company First Student told him. “They said sometimes parents get on the bus, to ask questions or deliver information. They didn’t think the parent was going to get out of control and do anything,” said Green, “It’s more like putting the kids in danger, what if you mistaken the kid… who did the bullying, you whooping someone’s kid who didn`t do anything, that`s messed up.”
