Lawsuit Alleges Two Maryland Police Officers Harassed and Assaulted a 5-Year-Old Kindergartner

(CNN) — Two Maryland police officers have been accused of screaming at, grabbing, and threatening a 5-year-old elementary school student.

The boy’s mother, Shanta Grant, filed a lawsuit this month against Montgomery County Police Officers Dionne Holliday and Kevin Christmon — as well as Montgomery County and the Montgomery County Board of Education.

The Montgomery County Department of Police told CNN it does not comment on ongoing or pending litigation. CNN was not able to reach Officer Holliday. Officer Christmon declined to comment to CNN.

The case comes amid public pressure for widespread change in policing policy following high-profile police encounters — some involving the treatment of children by law enforcement. The broader outcry has included calls to defund or abolish police departments.
