PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police say Mayor Nutter’s daughter was assaulted at a high school track meet last week in Germantown. An 18-year-old woman has been charged in the case.
It happened last Thursday at a track meet at the Germantown “supersite” athletic fields.
Police sources say Olivia Nutter, a senior at Masterman High, got into a “verbal altercation” with a group of girls. One of them reportedly then punched Olivia Nutter in the head and pulled her hair.
Police say she didn’t require medical treatment.
Another teen, 18-year-old Ciarra Ryan of the 5100 block of Pulaski Avenue in Germantown, turned herself in Monday on charges of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
Mayor Nutter — speaking this morning after a “Take your Daughters and Sons to Work” event (which Olivia Nutter did not attend) — asked for privacy for his family.
“Olivia is doing fine,” he said. “Coming along. And information has been turned over to the proper authorities, and it’ll go from there like any other circumstance here in the city.”
Ryan is free after posting bail. Court records show she is also awaiting trial on an unrelated assault charge dating to last January.
