ATLANTA - A student, his mother and sister are wanted after a child was attacked at a bus stop, police said.

Atlanta Public Schools Police said the trio beat up and stabbed the middle school student with a knife last week on Mount Gilead Road in southwest Atlanta.

School officials said that the victim is doing "well" after what happened. They said detectives are still looking for the two adults and one middle school student who left the child bloodied at the bus stop.

A police report Channel 2’s Matt Johnson obtained said the attack happened as the victim was trying to get to Bunche Middle School. 

Another student, his mother and his older sister confronted the victim at the bus stop, the police report said. Police said the sister swung at him while he tried to get on the bus, he threw his book bag and then the trio jumped him.

Neighbors in the area said both women have a lot of explaining to do.

“I feel like they should just turn themselves in. That's wrong,” neighbor Lusha Shepard said.

It’s the same bus stop Shepard walks her kids to every morning.

“I walk my kids to the bus stop faithfully because you never know what can happen,” Shepard said.

An attorney for the Harris contacted Johnson and told him that she is aware of the allegations and is willing to cooperate with police.

Harris has a criminal history in Fulton County that includes two child cruelty charges in 2006. Harris was jailed on forgery charges in 2012.

The principal at Bunche Middle School notified parents Friday and said that no other students were put in harm’s way.
