The boys may have been playing but now the 3rd grader is afraid to go back there. “I was scared, I was shaking after it,” she said. “They took a rubber band, you know the rubber bracelets that the kids wear, they took it and and hogtied her hands, and then picked her up and threw her down some tubes,” Vowell said.
