MULLINS, SC (WMBF) – A parent was arrested and charged on Thursday after allegedly getting involved in a fight between two 16-year-old students at Mullins High School.

Mullins Police Capt. Joe Graham said Leiquenta Grant, 35, was charged with third-degree assault by mob and disturbing schools.

Grant is the mother of one of the two 16-year-old girls who were reportedly fighting at Mullins High, according to Graham.

The suspect’s daughter faces the same counts as Grant, while the other student is charged with third-degree assault, Graham said. 

Robin Sanders, the mother of the student Grant is accused of assaulting, is questioning how a grown woman was able to get into the school. She alleged that no one came to her daughter’s aid except one of her friends.

“Where was everybody else?” Sanders said.

Her daughter, Kabresha Sanders, 16, alleged that the school argument escalated when the other girl called her mother, Grant, and told her what was happening.

Kabresha Sanders alleged the suspect got on top of her and started hitting her. She said she was left with a knot on her forehead and scratches on her face.

Because of her charge, Kabresha Sanders said she received a week’s suspension from school and won’t report back until March 17.

Mullins High School was placed on a modified lockdown Thursday as officials dealt with the incident, according to information from the district.

“Administration was quick to respond and with the assistance of law enforcement, the incident was brought to a resolve,” said Deborah Wimberly, with the office of public relations and special projects for the Marion County School District ,via email.

She added administrators did place the school on the modified lockdown as part of a standard safety procedure.

Classes continued, and the day concluded in a normal fashion once the situation was resolved, according to Wimberly.

The incident remains under investigation.
