KENOSHA COUNTY , Wis., May 16 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin father has taken out a restraining order against a 5-year-old kindergartener who has allegedly been bullying his daughter at Prairie Lane Elementary School in Kenosha County.

Brian Metzger took out the order after his daughter's classmate allegedly threatened her and physically attacked her.

"She came home and said a student threatened her by saying, 'I want to slit your throat and watch you bleed,'" Metzger told WISN.

According to Metzger, the male student has also bothered other students in the class and the school has shirked its responsibilities in dealing with the situation.

"I think they should have done something a lot sooner. They've kept him in the same classroom with my daughter throughout this until Wednesday morning because Tuesday night I showed up with a restraining order," Metzger said. "What they're doing, their policies aren't good enough."

Metzger is hoping to get the boy permanently removed from the school.

"There's always two sides to every story," Kenosha Unified School District spokeswoman Tanya Ruder said.
