COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Tabor City mom says her five-year-old son was raped at school. But it’s who she says attacked the boy that you just won’t believe.

Sherri Loika says her son was sodomized in a restroom at Tabor City Elementary School by a five-year-old classmate. She found out the night it happened after his teacher called.

“She told me that the boys were taking a long time in the bathroom, so she went in to hurry them along, and that’s when she noticed another boy’s penis was on my son’s leg,” Loika said.

But that wasn’t all. When Loika asked her son what happened, he says a different boy raped him.

A doctor examined her son, but Loika says there was no physical tearing or scrapes because of the boys’ ages and their physical development. Wednesday, she says a psychologist confirmed her fear.

“Most kids, she said walk in there and give her short yes or no answers,” Loika said. “He spelled out exactly what happened to him and drew pictures of it. She told me there’s no doubt in her mind that this incident did occur with him.”

Since the attack, Loika says her son lays in bed in every morning refusing to go to school.

“He used to get up every morning before the alarm clock would go off and get his clothes on, and he would be ready to go to school,” she said. “Now, all he wants to do is lay there. He doesn’t want to go there.”

Loika claims the school threatened her son with truancy for staying home, even though the school would not remove him from the same class as his alleged attacker. Loika says Superintendent Alan Faulk called her today, finally agreeing to transfer her son to another school. Faulk did not want to comment because of sensitivity of the situation.

Loika showed us a letter from DSS and the investigation report from the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office. Both said nothing could be done about the situation and the investigation has been closed. Under state law a child under six cannot be held criminally liable.

“Nobody is trying to investigate anything,” Loika said. “They’re trying to throw their hands up, throw it under the rug like it never even happened.”

    No, shame on you, Marci. You obviously have no clue what you are talking about which is exactly what the majority of the problem is with this situation and others in the county. People that know nothing or little about situations feel the need to comment on everything.
    If you have never taught one day in a classroom, don’t try to assume what it is like or the challenges that teachers face due to negligent parents and influences from home. If you have ever raised children, imagine raising 26 on your own for 180 days for more “wake” hours than their own parents have them. By the way, teachers spend 4 years receiving an EDUCATION (that means learning how to teach kids on subject matter, not how to teach and parent them because thats not done at home in many cases)because they CARE ABOUT KIDS….its certainly not for the paycheck! Trust me, no one would tolerate barely getting by, dragging home hours of work, and putting up with a lot of outside influences if they didn’t care for the kids. Be careful who you judge! It is extremely unfair of you to be so critical!
    On that note, children NEVER go to the restroom by themselves…sorry! But that is incorrect information. We have a buddy system in this county (that means 2 at a time) since an incident occurred in the restroom at WILLIAMS TOWNSHIP back in the late 1990s.
    Teachers take the entire class to the restroom where students may go in one at a time…when students request to go to the restroom at a time that the whole class doesn’t go, the teacher must send the kids in pairs…
    The teacher did what was right…
    Teachers can control the factors that are within their job, and their role as professionals…they cannot however control the behavior of other students when they are not in their presence.
    If the teacher would have left the entire class unattended, she would have been held liable for any indcidents.
    In other words…It was let the kid pee in his pants…quit teaching to take the kids back to the restroom and interupt more learning time because the kids had to go AGAIN…or leave the class unattended…I mean really…what more do y’all want?
    Its amazing to me how this parent and everyone else is angry at the school and its employees because they were choosing to follow protocol…but no one is remotely upset with the parents and family from which this child committed such an act? Good grief people! Where are your priorities?
    I would never subject my child to having to relive this event…if it even happened…every day just because I’m trying to prove a point. There’s ways of taking care of what she wants to without subjecting him to being labeled for the rest of his life. The only person responsible for ruining this child’s image and reputation are the ones who keep handling their business on Facebook and in the public eye! Is this about helping the kid or seeking to embarrass and hurt others? If this was about the kid it seems like his privacy, feelings, and future would be of upmost concern…not whether employees are going to be fired for doing their job. As a parent who is happy with my child’s place at a school in the county school system…if you don’t like the schools and your child’s right to a public education…you haul ‘em to the charter school everyday and provide all of their meals or pay your dues to send ‘em to private school.

  • Guest885134 says:

    I just don’t understand why the mother waited a week to say anything. Her Facebook clearly says that the child was suspended Friday for threatening to “stab” a female student. Then on Monday she starts posting all this stuff. To me seems like it’s trying to get back at the school/school system for suspending her child.

    The story on her page seems to be missing a lot of details! If you ask a child the same question over and over…they’ll soon tell you what you want to hear. 5 year old boys raping one another? Is that even possible? Come on!!!!

  • sherry says:

    wendy thats where you are wrong because there is no buddy system in this school she sent 3 boys into that bathroom and did not go check on them until she heard my son scream NO STOP. she let that out at the last meeting between me her and the principal.. so talk on issues you do know and if you are a teacher i feel sorry for you because your system sucks and by system i do mean school system aka ALAN FAULK SUPERINTENTENT!!!!

  • sherry says:

    sorry but your local paper sucks as well i know because i read the bull crap too it says that the sheriffs office referred it to dss sorry but dss refused it refused to investagate if you’d looked at wway youd seen the documents i provided which proved that already!!!hope you dont have kids either.and you know peditricans need more schooling my sons doctor said the same thing said he wasnt sure if a kid that age could get an errection but if you want the proof scroll down to a link i posted for another smart a** and read it you might find it interesting to know that can and he did.!!!

  • OUTRAGED says:

    Maybe the offender can’t be held legally responsible because of his age but the SCHOOL and HIS PARENTS can be help legally responsible. I hope that this mother will hire a GOOD lawyer!!

  • sherry says:

    the reason i put it out there dem witts is because i also have a true concern for the other children in this school system that may be being bullyed, raped, and what ever else god horrible things are happening in this school system that the adults turn a blind eye too if you do have children in this school system i pray that your child hasnt been harmed because seeing the way your reacting to this i know he or she or they wont get the support they need at home.if you call your child a liar will they ever trust you to tell them when somethings wrong again probably not i never once doubted my child because his story was consistant the teachers was loopy the principal who was not even supervising his school that day was loopy and further more the whole system is loopy because some speak of buddy systems some speak of only one child being aloud in the bathroom and this school allows 3 children to go in unsupervised wtf?????????????

    we did not wait a week it was reported the same day we tried to send him back to school on friday like the dr suggested and all the rest happened about the suspention on that day.

    I just read my local paper and it says dss is still invovled i know for afact that something dont sound right here and just so u know i dont think delco is in that county i might be wrong nut last i cjecked it wasnt and i dont care what a phs says they will lie in aheart beat if they think they can get more money out of u i have a cuz that is one and he come out and td me that my kids docotr even said a 5 year old boy cant even get a hard on much less keep one up at that age so everubody needs to get facts straight if it did happen im sorry if not u r one fed up human being

  • truth says:

    Things do happen,back in the late 90’s my child was touched by another child.No one helped untill I told then principl Ronald Ward if it happen again,I would do bodly harm too him.Then the school reported it to the police.Any time something like this happens,the police are to be notfied.My child was only 6.This kid had learend this at home,so don’t think adults are the only ones.

  • sherry says:

    look at tonights do you believe it now and there’s one more i know of that hasnt come forward and i do hope she does. my niece told me today that a little girl in her new school told her that she was raped at tabor city elementary school last year and thats why she was at the new school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Marci Young says:

    U dim wit- she was speaking out- to any and everyone at the time of the occurance however NOONE would pay attention to her. It wasn’t until a week later that this news station was kind enough to post.
    You do have it right, there are missing parts of the story- such as only one child is supposed to be in the bathroom at a time- or the teacher said it was just a crazy thing that happened- or the teacher said she can’t watch them all at one time.
    You know kids poke or say i’mma cut you with scissors all the time.. mine licked another in his eyeball… but no, they don’t go around putting their genatalia in each’s rears. That’s learned behavior that’s passed on.
    Shame on you for placing blame onto that mother. Shame on you for not looking at the victims– the child it happened to, the children that did it- the mom that has to console her child. Shame on the school that condoned this because THEY are to be the loca parentis while the children are there. Shame on you for your post and for this whole school system that failed the children.

  • Motherofason says:

    Actually newborns can get an erection. All of your doctor’s are wrong. My son was 2 months when he started having erections. It is very common in a lot of boys to have erections during the 1st year or 2 of their lives. My son is now almost 4, and he will have an erection every once in a while. If the blood rushes to it (in other ways then sexually aroused), a little boy can get hard. It has nothing to do with them getting horny. But even if the boy wasn’t hard, he may of been trying to do something that he has seen his parents do all the time, or movies, or if his dad does it to him. Who knows, but that shit is disturbing. My son is starting kindergarten in 2013, and I would flip out if I found out that happened to my child. I’d be taking a trip to the parents house! Im glad to see his mom took him to see a doctor and get checked out, though. Physically and mentally. Some parents don’t give a shit, but I’d be very very concerned if it was my baby. He’s 5, so he’s probably going to remember this for the rest of his life, and have to grow up in the same school system as the bully that raped him. Man, I would move outta state to protect him, if I were her. Very sad situation.

  • WRS says:

    Sherry…do you not understand buddy system? Sending more than one kid to the bathroom at the time is a buddy system! Why should she have to go check on them if she sends them with a buddy? Duh..that kind of defeats the purpose of not loading up the entire class again in the first place!
    Just handle your kid’s situation at home between you, your kid, the appropriate authorities, and God. He’s the only one who knows the truth at this point. I highly doubt how taking this information public has really helped you or your kid. After all, Facebook and other sites were intended for social media purposes, not solving the world’s problems! All you’re going to get on here are opinions from people who either 100% support you or are 100% against you. It certainly hasn’t made anyone look any more favorably upon your situation and it hasn’t shut the school down. It operates every single day with or without you! The only person you are driving crazy is yourself.
    Like it was said…appreciate your right to public education…or haul ‘em or pay for them to go somewhere else! Your right to do so!

  • Guest1234567890 says:

    Children that age role play. They act out what they see and hear from others. Yes it is possible.

  • victoria says:

    Children don’t come up with this stuff by themselves–that boy who raped him was obviously raped himself and thinks it is an acceptable behavior. He needs help IMMEDIATELY. Both of the boys do.

  • Guest31813181 says:

    It is sad what happened to this cild rather you want to call it rape or not. Our children should be able to go to school and be safe from all harm. This child just wanted to go to the bathroom thats all.

    Most teachers do the best they can. They are very busy teaching, playing doctor to sick ones, listening to sad ones cry for reasons that are important to the child at the time, playing mom and dad to many children. Its reality and you can say what you want until you walk in their shoes, it is easy to judge.

    This should have never happened but it did. The focus should be making sure the child involved is not emotionally affected which can happen.

  • Victoria says:

    Oh yeah, it’s TOTALLY WRONG when rape victims ask for justice. I mean, WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE? VICTIMS!?!?!? He probably dressed too provocatively!!!

  • victoria says:

    I’m so sorry that happened to your child–you did the right thing to keep him safe. That child who raped him needs help right away–it’s too bad he probably isn’t going to get any. The other girl you talked about? It’s illegal to offer a transfer and then not provide transportation, so she needs to get a lawyer and get that worked out.

  • Victoria says:

    Actually, even newborns can have erections, so that takes are of YOUR theory.

  • Guest1964 says:

    thank you Wendy.

  • Jerry Springer says:

    Like every thing else in the poverty of Columbus County, it is a money driven issue. Someone told the mother she could be sitting on a gold mine. Now the child is looked at as a cash cow. His life now may be ruined not by what happened to him, which at best is questionable, but what his mother will subject him to for dreams of easy money. Shame on her for using her son as way to better her life. Who’s best interest is at hand here. I know the people of Tabor City. It’s all about the money.

  • Marcus says:

    Yes!!! It’s always all about the money, if these parents suing schools , towns, church’s , etc. etc. then instead of taking the money , donate every dime you win in a lawsuit to some charity and then you can prove you only wanted justice and you wasn’t in it for the cash, just like these men suing these priests from 30 or 40 years ago, why wait so long, they seen dollar signs, and that’s all it’s about CASH!!!

  • Guest789 says:

    The definition of rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person’s consent.

    With this being said and what was described by the parent obviously rape did not occur. It is not physically possible at the age of 5 for a child to “rape” another child. Kids do some of the strangest things at times and a boy trying to pee on another boy is highly likely. Being that his physical anatomy is not developed there is no doubt that his penis would be on the boy’s leg to pee on him.

    How could a teacher be to blame for something a child does? Kids can be unpredictable sometimes. There is no way that a teacher would prevent this an act of silliness. The problem in school systems today is that kids are not controlled and disciplined at home and when they go to school and misbehave and the teachers try to discipline them they are scolded by the parents and made to deal with the behavior daily. The child also knows that they can get by with the behavior so they continue to act up because they know nothing will be done. Because the teacher has to constantly tend to the disruptive behavior it interferes with the education of other students in the class that actually want to learn. Of course parents want to think their child does no wrong but I’m sorry to say that is not always the case.

  • Guest1 says:

    I agree! People should get all the facts before stating their opinions on such a sensitive subject. Why would the mother be putting all of this in the public? If she had a true concern for her child she would be seeking anwers privately, not publicly. She seems more concerned with putting “her” story out there instead of helping her son.

  • 3293 says:

    I have to agree….we are talking about 5 year olds here! The more that is made out of this issue the worse it is going to be on the child. I bet if there was another 4 or 5 year old sibling in the house and this happened…the mother probably would have thought it was funny. Get grip!!

  • Guest410 says:

    I would really like to see a follow up on this story.

  • Guest6883 says:

    My comment is in response to your post in perticular. Your have every right to your opinion but when you post information about what you have read or heard it makes it hard to listen to what you are saying when the words that you are using are only used while texting. Not everyone knows that type of language. I am one who dose understand that type of language and I even had a hard time figuring out what you were saying.
    Now as for my comment about this case. I am not involved in it in any way, but I have been in the shoes of bieng a teacher and in the shoes of an abuse victim. Weather it happened or not, I applaud the teacher who stepped up and did her job by checking on the boys in the bathroom. Also when she realized what had been going on she didn’t ignore it. She took approiate action by notifing the parent that the incident took place. As for the child, I know first hand the damaging affects that abuse can have on a child. I am, to this day, still working on the affects that my own abuse has had on me. So I beg on behalf of both children to get them both help immediately. I can already see the damage that this incident has caused this poor child already. So I also beg the people who are in charge(i.e school, police, DSS) to quit harassing this boys mother when she is only trying to protect and do what is right for her son.

  • Guest2121 says:

    The teacher can not be at fault for this. As an education major, i know that we are supposed to promote independence and allow the children to go the bathrooms on their own. This is the parent’s responsibility, and the attacker’s parents should be aware of what their child is doing. They should be held responsible. Not the teacher. She did what she was supposed to, and went to check on them when they were in the bathroom for too long.

  • Derek Kahn says:

    Have any of you heard of Munchhausers by proxy? This syndrome affects mothers wishing for attention usually in the form of elaborate stories about their children.

  • concerned 77 says:

    5 years old or 50 years old, playing Dr or not playing dr… You do not put your genitals in or on another person, thru their clothes or skin to skin contact without their permission. Otherwise its sexual assault. As a mother with 2 kids in Columbus county schools, I want to be informed. This is not the first time somethings happened. A young lady was assaulted last year on the bus by a boy trying to put his penis in her mouth as other boys held her down… Its ridiculous.

  • lisa says:

    YOU NEED THE GRIP IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MONEY NO ONE HAS OFFERED MONEY OR ANYTHING ELSE I SURE HOPE YOU DONT HAVE CHILDREN YOU AND JERRY MUST WORK FOR THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. JUST THINK IF THIS WAS YOUR CHILD WOULD YOU OR WOULD YOU NOT AT LEAST WANT A DECENT AND TRUE INVESTIGATION AND IF IT WASN’T TRUE WHY WOULD THE TEACHER EVEN ADMIT SHE SEEN THE BOYS THING ON THE BOYS LEG.I KNOW ITS HARD TO BELIEVE BECAUSE OF THEIR AGES BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE THE ATTACKERS SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM SCHOOL AND INVESTIGATED.

  • Unlisted says:

    I am absolutly appalled by every single thing you just said. First of all you are a hypocrite in a major way!! You slam Columbus County and everyone in it and then you’re going to say, and I quote, “If it makes you feel like someone to put others down who don’t have what you have…”! Give me a break! So I ask, Did it make you feel good to down Columbus County that apparently from your comment doesn’t have as much as you do?? I have moved around the country and seen what it has to offer. Trust me when I say there are “Crack heads” and “red necks” and “losers” EVERYWHERE!!! Plus, there are plenty of worse places to live.
    What exactly happened or did not, I do not know and doubt many others do either.
    To your rude comment about the “imbred idiot”, there are plenty of educated idiots.

  • Watching Wilmington says:

    You are really a cruel idiot to imply that this was only a case of playing doctor. Was it your child that was caught raping the other child? Is that why you are trying to play this off as something minor?

    Children act out what they see adults do. Maybe the alleged rapist watched something on tv. Maybe he is being sexually moelested and raped at home and thinks that it is okay for him to play this game with another child.

    The matter needs to be investigated, not swept under the rug!

    Dung Head! If this was your child you would be singing a different tune!
    SMH!

    YOUR A PERVERSE PERSON. YOUR THOUGHTS ARE THOSE OF A TWISTED MENTALITY,GOD BE MERCIFUL( IF) YOU HAVE CHILD OR CHILDREN

  • Guest2020 says:

    I will keep you and your son in my prayers. From someone who has witnessed the long term effects of child molestation, please keep your son in therapy. It’s his best chance. And I think it’s a shame that you had to move your son to another school instead of the other child being moved. Regardless, I pray God’s blessings on you and your son.

  • Watching Wilmington says:

    There are perverted parents who are raising perverted children and sending them to school thinking that perversion is normal.

    I will always believe the child who made the claims. Where would they get something like this from????

    Who is examining the little kid that did this??

    All of the children need help! This is sick and disgusting.

    If the local authorities do not investigate this matter and take some actions against the little perv and his family, take it to the National News. I bet that they will do something when their country-bumpkin faces are flashed all over the news!

    SMH!

  • CCresident says:

    This is ridiculous. Police closed this case because it isn’t even logical. I live in Columbus County and Sherri, I sure hope you move to Loris SC and not into my community. We don’t want any fools like you in our community.
    First of all, learn the definition of rape. Next, tell us how he raped your son. Did he pentrate him? Please! You are a basketcase as well. Go hire RC to take your case.

  • Guest42410 says:

    Psychologists can be very good at implanting ideas into peoples heads and leading a child to say things that are not actually the case. I am not saying this did not happen to your child im just saying that psychologists can skew things.

  • wade Griffis says:

    I am almost 73 and should know better than to comment, when I did not have a dog in that fight.

    I did, however serve 4 years in the service of my country. I do, also have the guts to sign my real name to my posts. Something that I note most of you not do.

  • psartin says:

    I just got very upset about your comment. Just bc the police closed the case doesnt mean nothing happened. Theres alot that goes on in that horrible place you call home, and for the record, I do have a college education which is more than i can say about most of your residents in that county. Id say if this had happened to someone in your family, you would be crazy. You have no right to say what did and did not happen. I lived there just briefly, thank God, until I returned back to the real world. And you should be careful what you say did and did not happen, bc the good Lord is watching you too. Just bc someone doesnt have money or bc they dont own a farm around there, yeehaw!!! You and your town, including the police force around there, decide who commits crimes. Your town is infested with crack heads and losers. If it makes you feel like someone to put others down who dont have what you have, then you should stay in the sorry excuse for a town, they called Columbus CO. You dumb rednecks make me sick, why dont you and your precious town try teaching people what right and whats wrong. I think its funny, bc you are laughing at this lady and the issue, while I and everyone else in the real world are laughing at you, your an imbred idiot….

  • Guest2020 says:

    Police closed the case because a child under the age of six cannot be held criminally responsible for his actions. Reread the story. I hope to God that you never have anyone you love to go through this. This is an absolute nightmare. Victims of child molesters suffer a lifelong sentence.

    If you don’t understand what a victim of child molestation goes through, you have to look no further than your backyard and look at the lives of RC Soles’ victims. They had problems to begin with and they were victimized and their lives are now in ruins.

  • lmetayer says:

    Just because your an older gentleman and just because you have served our country 4 years doesn’t give you the knowledge to dismiss this! For all that matters my husband has served our country 18 years almost 19 and I have been with him for a fair amount of that time. That doesn’t make me knowledgeable however I do have a Criminal Justice/Psychology degree that does give me knowledge and the ability to know and see that things like this DO HAPPEN it isn’t playing doctor ugh!

  • sherry says:

    the only basket case is you hun what if this were your child????and if you followed you would see that he did stick his penis in my sons butt. i dont have time for people like you, the only person im worried about is my son at this moment i just pray to god if you have children and you act like this that they are safe from the way you talk you need your home life investagated. it is logical and is happening everywhere the only reason you dont know is because these schools are covering it up!!!!!

  • lisa says:

    basket case you haven’t seen basket case mess with grandma. you are so scared to even put your name down on your post i would not have a hair brain like you living in my community if you would do the research on rape and your fine schools you would find out its happening every day ,year and so on to someones child and they sweep it under a rug like cowards.tell their staff to shut their mouths or lose their jobs.i hope to god you don’t have children because if one came home after something like this the poor child wouldn’t have any home support. god help them.

  • sherry says:

    its no longer a matter of if it happened my son seen a psychiatrist this morning and she said it did happen.

  • Guest Redneck Across the River says:

    I pretty much feel the same way. Probably harmless play. I assure you, the big to-do over this will do a lot more damage than the act itself. Could have been a girl playing with a boy……..everybody assumes the instigator is a male.

  • LK says:

    I am so sorry for this child to have been victimized like this. At 5 my kids had no idea of anything of this nature. Praying that he recovers from this ordeal and the other child is rescued from his apparent hell as well. Children only live what they learn.

  • whitevilleparent says:

    anyone who see’s no harm in this or thinks that its a joke must not have children, because whether it was playing or not ITS A BIG DEAL. If in fact the boy accused of being the one who done the rape was just playing then he needs better guidance of right from wrong, because its obvious he’s not getting any at home either way he needs removing from the care he’s under now and getting some real help just think if he done this to another child at 5 years old and thinks its ok what will he be capable of doing at 18 and thinking its ok? Before just brushing this story off like it doesn’t matter, try putting yourself in this parents shoes. Even if the child wasn’t harmed physically , think of the emotional damage that has been done to this poor 5 year old and think about how hard it must be for his parents while they are trying to explain to their son why this happened to him.

  • lmetayer says:

    A 5 year old can’t be raped maybe someone should investigate you small children are raped all the time and it goes undetected! You are nuts! This poor child has been harmed he is scared and he is afraid now! I guess Wade you probably think if a woman has a short skirt on and get’s raped she probably was asking for it. It’s mentality like yours that causes some major issues in our society!

    A girl with a penis? The story said: “She told me that the boys were taking a long time in the bathroom, so she went in to hurry them along, and that’s WHE SHE NOTICE ANOTERH BOY’S PENIS was on my son’s leg,” This is what the TEACHER said so I dont understand how people are doubting this.

    IF YOU READ THE STORY IT STATES A MALE

  • lisa says:

    it is true it was my grandson he is 5 years old 2 boys molested him in the bathroom at school.it was all boys no assuming everyone hopes it won’t happen to their children and i hope to god it doesn’t but it did to him and im tired of people assuming that its lies because of age do research you find out it starts at birth. may god be with each and everyone that has a child and knows what we are going through

  • lisa says:

    I can assure you this is not a crock. It happened to my grandson and I am so glad WWAY came to put the story out there we want these other kids to get help so it doesn’t happen to someone else’s child yes my grandbaby is going to have to seek help the rest of his life. I just hope and pray that he is young enough to grow into a healthy young man and we are going to do all we can to lessen the damage.I love my grandson and it hurts my heart to know what he is facing in the future.To know the people that are suppose to watch and protect our children have failed once again i want to scream from a roof top but my health won’t let me get up there.

    This is crazy. People are loony. 5 year old kids dont rape each other. Playing, maybe. I highly doubt anything happened. Psychiatrists are looking at this all wrong. They are kids and do really strange things, don’t always jump to the worst.

  • brian says:

    At 5 years old, kids know nothing about sex. If your son can describe a sexual encounter in detail, then it was taught to him (or done to him) by an adult or teenager that knows him, or someone in your household. Where’s his father? Do you have a boyfriend that comes around while your child is at home? ‘seen a psychiatrist’? ‘was seen by’ is the proper English phrase.

  • Tonja says:

    Are you serious? Have you seen how a lot of those situations turn out? Making a statement like that tells me why you didn’t list your name. You really are clueless..

  • bill says:

    It is ashame what has happend to the child. I do agree that the children has seen this either at home or on TV. Parents should beaware of what their children are seeing on the TV or computer.
    It sad that supervised bathroom breaks are needed for 5 year olds.
    Children need a good foundation and it all begins at home.

  • Guest1022 says:

    All children should be removed from the home and raised by the State. It is obvious that parents do not know how to raise a child properly and only the State can do this.

  • anne says:

    This situation is so sad! Children, especially this age, act out what they see or hear. The child has seen this at home, on tv, or at the movies. The school needs to be more diligent about watching these kids, especially after something like this happens. Their response would be that they don’t have enough people to watch over these children, and can’t afford to do so, but in my opinion, they cannot afford not to do so

  • Das Weibstück says:

    My Grandchild is 5, I cant see this at all. She has no idea about sex only that shes a girl and there are boys. If this happened there is a MAJOR problem at the attackers home !!!

  • Wade Griffis says:

    Come on! Two five year olds playing doctor. I will bet that there are millions who have played this game. Rape at 5 years old? give me a break!

  • Bear17 says:

    Previous post is correct about there being a MAJOR problem at the attacker’s home. Let me add that IF this happened, there’s also a major problem at the SCHOOL. And whether happened or not, it reflects a major problem with society, in general…which is having absolutely no regard for other individuals.

    That being said, I hope to God this isn’t true. If it is, that child (the attacker) should be removed from his parent, parents, or whoever is pretending to raise him IMMEDIATELY. Whoever it is has failed this child miserably. There IS no excuse for this.

  • Guest111 says:

    Of course there’s a major problem at the house. I hope DSS has removed him from his house (it’s not a home) and put him somewhere where he can be guided properly.

    Children are a mirror of their family or lack of.

  • Mike T says:

    Man oh Man whats in the water aroud Tabor City. Almost every day there seems to be something crazy going on. This is too Weird even for Tabor City.

  • Guestfellini says:

    The family of the attacker needs to be investigated. A child of that age would only know rape if it had been done to him. Poor little things!

  • karen1973 says:

    I think that the ppl that think it didn’t happen on here needs to think if their child had this done to them…Kids these days will surprise you about what they see @ home….I think the teacher and principal need to be fired and the attackers need their home life looked @ very closely and taken away. They all are going to need help to let them know it is wrong cause if they don’t get it, it just might happen again to someone else’s child….It’s bad enough it happen to this sweet boy. Also the school trying to cover up before the news got it..WOW and we send our kids to school where we THINK our kids are looked after..Not @ that school and others as well……

  • lisa says:

    You never can tell whats going on with our children when they leave us for 8 or more hrs a day we hope they are in good hands but you never can tell when something like this happens the first reaction is shock then anger then despair especially when you see the child scared and hurting it does not help when they know it happened and everyone calls them liars and protects their attackers to cover their own behinds.I hope god can forgive every one of them because I don’t know if I can my little man has never hurt a soul.

  • GuestLeland says:

    I hope that WWAY offered the mother of the boy to remain anonymous. Why would you publish her name? This takes away any privacy from the 5 year old.
