A Black children's doll was found with a jump rope around it in a Arizona school restroom earlier this week.
According to Fox 10, the discovery was made by an employee during a routine check of the bathrooms at Queen Creek High School on Monday (May 22).
Queen Creek PD investigated the incident, and at least two students have been disciplined. The two were referred to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for interference and disruption of an educational institution, police said.
Queen Creek Unified School District condemned the incident in a statement explaining the discovery.
