SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California school district says it will investigate bullying claims by a mother suspected of attacking the 12-year-old boy she said was harassing her daughter at school.

Piner-Olivet Union Schools Superintendent Jennie Snyder said Monday that the district will look into the bullying allegations. Sonoma County sheriff's officials have said they also are investigating the possible harassment.

The girl's mom, Delia Garcia-Bratcher, was arrested on suspicion of inflicting injury on a child after sheriff's deputies say she came to Olivet Elementary Charter School in Santa Rosa on Friday and grabbed the boy by the throat.

Garcia-Bratcher was later released from county jail. Telephone listings for her were disconnected.

Sonoma County prosecutors said they were still awaiting the sheriff's report before deciding on any charges.
