The suspect, Christina Darling, is a psychology student at St. Francis College. She reportedly walked away after telling the three siblings that “Hitler should have killed you all. I’ll kill you and know where you live.”
According to the children’s father, Aryeh Fried, the boy told Ms Darling that he would save his little sister. “I have to teach him not to engage,” Ms Fried said. “But he engaged. And she came running back. Spat in his face. And told him, ‘We will kill you all. I know where you live. And we’ll make sure to get you all, next time.’”
“I would hope that she understands the severity of what she did,” Mr Fried added. “To do it to anybody is obviously problematic, but for an adult to do it to a child is just beyond crazy.”
Ms Darling, 21, has reportedly been charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime, menacing, and three counts of acting in a manner injurious to a child.
