Tayza Danielle Harris and daughter Chelsea Monicque Harris remain in the Fulton County Jail on aggravated assault, aggravated battery cruelty to children and disrupting public school charges, according to jail records.

The women have been on the run for more than a month since the Nov. 3 attack at a bus stop in southwest Atlanta.

Tayza Harris, 44, and Chelsea, 24, began arguing with the Bunche Middle School student, who was getting on the bus at the time of the attack, according to an Atlanta Public Schools police report.

Authorities said the student threw his bookbag at Chelsea Harris, who “swung” at him, but missed.

The two women then began attacking the boy, with one of them pulling out a knife and stabbing him, according to the report. He suffered cuts on his head, right hand and ear.

At one point, police said, Tayza Harris’ son joined in on the fight.
