A 12-year-old girl has been charged in connection with an acid attack against another child in a Detroit park.

The girl, who has not been identified, has been charged with one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and felonious assault, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. She was also ordered to have no contact with the victim, an 11-year-old girl identified as Dearia Summers.

After a preliminary hearing last week, a $10,000 bond was ordered with a tether – meaning the child will be asked to wear a monitor while out on bond. The next hearing in the case will be on Tuesday.

"This is an extremely troubling set of allegations. Instant horrible decision making can have lifelong effects on others. There is no excuse for this," Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement.

Still, the victim's mother, Dominique Summers, says she wants more charges brought against the suspect's mother, according to CBS Detroit.

"It was a nightmare because she came running through the door and smoke was coming off her body and holes were pierced all through her clothes," Summers told CBS Detroit in an on-camera interview. Summers immediately called 911, saying her mother's intuition kicked in, so she put her daughter in a cold shower until the ambulance arrived.

The July 9 incident happened after a bunch of girls allegedly got into an argument at the playground, according to CBS Detroit.

Summers says the suspect's mother should face consequences. "That's where it should've started," she said. "I know that a 12-year-old wouldn't come up with something like that on their own. To even think of something so evil to do."

In a GoFundMe to raise money for Deaira's medical costs, her grandmother Debra Golston claims Deaira, her siblings and cousins were at a park when an altercation occurred between another girl and the cousins.

Golston alleges the 12-year-old's "mother brought acid to the park for her child to retaliate," and that Deaira and her siblings had already left the park, but Deaira returned because she dropped her purse. That's when she was doused with the acid, the grandmother claims.

She says Dearia spent four days at the hospital with second and third degree burns. "She is lucky to be alive but will need ongoing care to fully heal from all the wounds she incurred," the GoFundMe states.

For Deaira Summers, the pain started almost instantly.

The victim of acid being thrown at her at a school playground, she now has trouble walking and has chemical burns all over her body. Sitting from her couch days after the attack, she says "it hurts a lot."

"My cousin and a girl had started fighting and once they stopped she says I got something for you all," she said.

According to Deaira's mother Dominique Summers, the substance was that was thrown came from the attacker's mom.

"Her mother met her in the park and gave her the chemical to throw on the kids and she told the kids that’s what they get for messing with her daughter," she said.

Initially, Deaira and everyone else escaped. But when the 11-year-old realized she had left her purse, she went back to grab it. The decision put her in harm's way. That's when her brother called home to report what happened.

Dominique said smoke was coming off her daughter's body "from head to toe."

"Holes were coming in her clothes," she said. From there, Deaira was rushed to a hospital with severe burns. After the check-up, she learned she had second and third-degree burns running downer back.

It's also made mobility a struggle while her mother is emotionally overwhelmed.

"No sleep, no eating, no nothing - I have to make sure my daughter’s needs are met," said Dominique.

The family has started a GoFundMe account to help pay for the unexpected medical bills. Now this family wants justice.

Detroit Police said it wasn't their case because it took place on the property of a Detroit Public Schools Community District playground and therefore DPSCD Police are investigating.

The school said in a statement:

"The incident did not involve our employees or was it connected to a District or school event. This is a community matter involving two families that do not both attend our school district or the school."
