    The mother of a 9-year-old girl who says she was bullied said Sunday that she boarded a school bus to confront one of her daughter's tormenters but denied slapping anyone despite being charged with assault.

A New Jersey mother and grandmother have been arrested on charges they attacked two fourth-grade boys they claim were bullying a 9-year-old girl.

Twenty-eight-year-old Rebecca Sardoni, of Toms River, and her mother, 51-year-old Stephanie Sardoni, of Beachwood, were arrested Friday.

Toms River police tell The Asbury Park Press that witnesses say the women boarded a school bus Friday bound for East Dover Elementary School and sought out boys they claimed had been harassing Rebecca Sardoni's daughter.

Police say Rebecca Sardoni cursed at and slapped two boys while her mother screamed at them.

Rebecca Sardoni denies she hit or touched anyone. She tells the newspaper she took matters into her own hands because school officials ignored her complaints.

School officials couldn't be reached for comment Sunday.
