TOMS RIVER - Police say a Toms River mother went too far protecting her daughter from alleged school bullies.

Rebecca Sardoni is accused of picking on and beating on two 9-year-old boys. Sardoni says three kids in her daughter's class have been bullying her, even sexually assaulting the 9-year-old girl.

The mother says she complained to the principal at East Dover Elementary School but that nothing was done. Police say Sardoni then went up to one of the young boys at a bus stop, yelling at him and allegedly hitting him.

Sardoni, who won't go into detail about what happened Friday morning for legal reasons, denies hitting the young boy. She was charged with simple assault, criminal trespass and making terroristic threats.
