Police say the teen allegedly pulled out a taser-like device and shocked the 13-year-old student. The victim’s mother then slashed the young attacker’s face with a sharp object.

That mother now faces multiple charges including felony assault. The NYPD is still trying to determine whether or not the 14-year-old will be charged for her role in the fight.

The 13-year-old is not expected to be charged with any crime.
