TULSA -- A Green Country family is fuming after they said their son was put in a choke hold by another parent while at school.
The family, now asking Tulsa Public Schools for answers.
The Kay family is upset because not only did their 7th grade child, Carson Kay, suffer minor injuries, but the name of the man who supposedly did it, hasn't even been released to them.
The Kay’s have been fighting for their child for almost a week.
“I just want the man to pay for what he did,” Shane Kay, Caron’s father said. “You just can't imagine the emotions going through me right then. You get mad and frustrated.”
It happened on Monday when 13-year-old, Carson got into a fight with another boy at Webster Middle School. It is then Carson said things escalated.
“This man, somebody's dad, just decided to break them up, even though there was a teacher there trying to do this,” Shane said. “The man puts my son in a headlock.”
Carson explains that he tried to get away from the man.
“As I’m trying to resist and get away from him, he just gets tighter and tighter, and starts dragging me,” Carson said.
He adds the man then claimed to be a police officer.
“He said oh, I’m a cop and I’m going to arrest you for resisting."
The Kay family said campus police confirmed the man is not an officer.
“The teacher then got him off of me saying. 'Who are you? You can't do that it's not your kid,'” Carson said.
Carson said the man then vanished and he was taken home by campus police. He went to the emergency room for his injuries. He describes them as marks around his neck, back and arms.
“I was scared because I couldn't breathe and he was just dragging me,” Carson said. “I couldn't move.”
The family demanded answers from the school, but said they struck out.
“You try to put it in the schools hands and take their word for it that they're going to do the right thing,” Shane said. “And here we are. This was Monday at 4 and it's Friday at 2, and nothing.”
A campus police report was filed, along with records from the doctor. However, about an hour before 2 Works for You spoke to the family, TPS did inform the Kay's the man was suspended from school grounds.
The family said they just want to know who this man is for the safety of their child.
2 Works for You did reach out to TPS, who said the issue is under investigation. The school district also said the name of the adult who allegedly did this is not being withheld, and that it is public record.
A TPS representative also said school leaders and campus police have been in touch with the family throughout the week, working to address their concerns.
