School brawl between parents, students … at ELEMENTARY school

School Police were called to intervene after a fight broke out at a South Florida elementary school between students and parents.

The large fight occurred at West Little River K-8 Center, at 2450 N.W. 84th St., Friday morning.

Two adults and four juveniles were taken into custody by Miami-Dade Schools Police. One of the adults has been charged with carrying a weapon on school grounds after officials discovered a butcher knife in her purse. The second adult was charged with aggravated battery. The juveniles have been charged with inciting a riot.

According to officials, eighth grader Jonathan Antoine was attacked Thursday at a nearby park. “When I fell, I scraped [my head] on the thing. Rocks and sand,” he said.

Relatives of both parties involved arrived at the school Friday morning to address the incident and wound up getting into a fight themselves.

Yarixa Rodriguez saw the incident while she was inside the school. “When I was in the office, the lady pushed me, and then she started running inside the office, and she was screaming, ‘Where’s my daughter?'” she said. “She started hitting the walls.”
