A black female student claims that she was pinned down and had her dreadlocks cut off by three white male classmates at a private Christian school in Virginia, The Daily Mail reports.

Amari Allen, 12, said that three white male students attacked her during recess at Immanuel Christian School in Fairfax, Virginia. She claims the boys pinned her arm behind her back and covered mouth before cutting off her dreadlocks with scissors. She also says they called her "ugly."

The students in question have not yet been identified, but Allen's family is demanding they be expelled. School officials say they have notified police and there is an ongoing investigation. Vice President Mike Pence's wife, Karen, teaches at the school part-time.
