SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH) -- A man was arrested after police say he paid a teenage girl $21 to fight another girl he believed was bullying his daughter.
Police say Philip Prokop, 42, paid off a 17-year-old girl to fight a 13-year-old suspected bully.
"My daughter was put through torture and she finally came forward to tell us," Prokup said.
Prokop spoke exclusively with News 8 explaining what happened outside Shelton's Huntington Plaza on May 26th.
"It's saying you asked a girl to beat up one of the girls," said News 8's Erin Logan.
"Absolutely not," Prokup replied.
Police say he paid a teenager $21 to beat up the girl who was bullying his daughter at Shelton Intermediate, where she was an eighth grader.
The incident has him facing two felony charges and conspiracy to commit assault.
