CANTON, Ohio — A family of a ten-year-old girl who has cerebral palsy turned over video to prosecutors that they say shows a man and his son making fun of their daughter, mimicking her walk.

Hope Holcomb’s family wants charges filed against the man. Hope says she’s been afraid to leave her home in East Sparta, Ohio, because she says she is being bullied by her 9-year-old next door neighbor and his father.

Hope’s grandmother shot video last week at the bus stop. In it you can see a boy and his father, William Bailey, walking slowly with a limp similar to Hope’s.

The prosecutor says she will review all the reports and meet with the families next week to determine what if any charges should be filed.
