Man Files Restraining Order Against 5-Year-Old

CBS 58

UPDATE: The restraining order against the 5-year-old student was dropped by a judge on May 20, according to WISN.

A Wisconsin father has filed a restraining order against a 5-year-old boy he says has been bullying his daughter.

Brian Metzger, whose daughter attends kindergarten at Prairie Lane Elementary School in Pleasant Prairie, told CBS Chicago that the boy has been harassing his daughter the whole year.

The girl claims the boy said to her, "I want to slit your throat and watch it bleed," Metzger told CBS 58 on Wednesday.

Metzger said he filed a police report -- and filed for a restraining order -- after the boy kicked the girl in the face and threw rocks and sand at her.

The father told WISN he took out the restraining order because the school was not doing enough to help his daughter.

"They've kept him in the same classroom with my daughter throughout this until Wednesday morning because Tuesday night I showed up with a restraining order," he told the station.

Metzger also said other students in the school were having trouble with the same boy.

Kenosha Unified School District spokeswoman Tanya Ruder told WISN she could not comment on the specifics of the case, but stated, "There's always two sides to every story."

Metzger told CBS 58 he's received some criticism for his decision, and that people have asked him why he didn't just contact the boy's parents.

"If they knew the facts, they'd know the parents have been contacted by the school," he said.
