KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A judge is being asked to halt bullying by a kindergartener in Kenosha County.

A court hearing is set for Tuesday, after the parents of a six-year-old girl asked for a restraining order to keep a five-year-old boy away from her.  

The two are in the same class at Prairie Lane Elementary School in Pleasant Prairie. Police said the girl was kicked in the face, and has had rocks and sand thrown at her.  

The girl's father told Milwaukee TV stations that his daughter has been threatened as well as attacked -- and the school should have done something about it sooner.  

Tanya Ruder of the Kenosha Unified School District said there are two sides to every story, but she couldn't give the school's take.  

The girl's father said he'll lobby to have the boy removed from Prairie Lane.  

One TV report said another family has also complained to police about the same boy -- and they're thinking about seeking a restraining order as well.
