Bharaj also told the Spectator that the victim is “severely allergic” to peanuts. She used her EpiPen, but still had a reaction and was taken to a hospital.

The Spectator reported that it was not clear if the victim and the suspect were students and police declined to comment further to “protect the privacy of the minors involved,” a spokesperson said.

The suspect, who was released on an undertaking, is charged with assault causing bodily harm, criminal harassment and administering a noxious substance “with intent to endanger life or cause bodily harm,” the spokesperson told the Spectator.
